Joining the JConcepts team in 2021 is 1/8th off-road specialist Joe Bornhorst. A driver capable of winning at the highest level, Joe will blend in nicely with the JConcepts team while assisting with tire selection and compound advise to drivers racing in the 1/8th off-road classes and in particular on the Tekno RC vehicles. Not a new driver to the scene but a fresh champion that has recently added a ROAR National title to his credit winning the 1/8th E-truck championship in 2019.

A great asset at the races, Joe will be seen at events including the Dirt Nitro Challenge but specifically during the Racetime Entertainment events where the JConcepts team is on-hand supporting the brand and all racers in attendance. Known as a driver that can wheel a 1/8th E-buggy, Joe will be able to provide valued feedback in one of the larger classes of concentration on the race schedule. Joe plans to make his JConcepts racing debut at the Southern Indoor Championships in Autaugaville, Georiga.  

Jason Ruona states – “There are only a handful of drivers that can muscle a 1/8th buggy, getting every bit out of the vehicle. Joe has that mystery speed everyone looks for at the races and pushes the limit of what an RC car can do on a race track. With incredible track knowledge, Joe, together with the passion of our design team, we plan to continue our push for the best performing and looking products on the market.”  

Joe Bornhorst states – “I’m very excited to be joining the JConcepts team for 2021! Jason and the team work tirelessly to not only create the best products, but to also help grow the industry that we all enjoy. I look forward to joining the success!”
