There will be two Memorial Awards – the Randy Vandrais Best Custom and the Oakey Al Best Oval Track racer. Recipients will be chosen from among all participants by the NNL West selection committee.

All award winners will receive a framed photo of their model with the NNL West logo and a beautiful NNL West plaque!.

Bring your models that were collecting dust on the shelf but you finished while sheltering in place in 2020"


This year's official charity is the

There will be a special table selling kits ($10.00 each) and all the money raised from the sale of these kits will go directly to the Wounded Warrior Project. If you don't want a kit, you can just donate money at this table as well!

Al Cummins Memorial Award Continues in 2022

The NNL West committe was sadden to hear that Al Cummins, a long time supporter of NNL West passed away a couple of years ago. NNL West and the hobby has lost a good friend. NNL committe member Rex Barden said, "The NNL committee decided to have a memorial award for Al Cummins, since Al has been a huge circle track fan all his life, we will have an award for Best Circle Track. We can't go overboard as the NNL is supposed to be "non competitive" event. As more of us older modelers pass on, we don't want to turn the NNL into a memorial show, but Randy Vandraiss and Al Cummins were special."

Will be presenting an award again this year.

Save time, print out this registration form, fill it out, and bring it with you!
