The engines will roar again this week from a back lot in a dusty corner of Saugus. No, it's not a revival of the Saugus Speedway, but the roar of tiny engines of radio-controlled cars. The "drivers" of so-called R/C vehicles will be competing in one of the most prestigious events of their class in the nation--the 16th annual Reedy Invitational--honoring R/C pioneer Mike Reedy of Costa Mesa.

When Mike Reedy looks back over the years, he says his professional and personal life truly began in 1972, when he was 30 years old, in an old parking lot in Garden Grove. He stood there, fascinated, as his friends raced radio-controlled cars as if nothing else mattered in the world. That day, and the hobby, drew him in like nothing he'd ever experienced, he says. He's lived in a toy-car world ever since.
