Traxxas is teaming up with Craig Ranch to offer McKinney residents a day of radio control excitement this Saturday, June 11. The event begins at 9 a.m. and will continue through the afternoon ending at 1 p.m. in Van Tuyl plaza in Craig Ranch. The event is open to the public and features live demonstrations, a test driving track set up for guests to race the cars themselves, free catalogs and DVDs, live music, photo opportunities, and Traxxas’ latest award winning models on display.
Traxxas, an industry leader in hobby-class radio controlled cars, trucks and boats, announced last summer that it would be moving its corporate headquarters to McKinney and will be a part of the Craig Ranch employment district. Traxxas is set to build a $12-15 million, 160,000 to 200,000 square foot campus-style office complex at the northwest corner of the Sam Rayburn Tollway (S.H. 121) and Stacy Rd. There is also a retail component planned as well as test facilities and race tracks with public access.
