Slot car racing was a world of fun, back in the ''60's. I had a couple cars, a Vette and a '40 Willys. Raced at a track in Burbank on Glenoaks Bl.
25 cents got you about fifteen minutes of fame.

Great bunch of guys!
If you rode a Sting Ray and had a Skateboard with clay wheels chances are you raced Slot Cars!
I raced at Revell Raceway in North Hollywood when I was 11 yrs old.
This stuff brings back fond memories of the cars, the whine of the motors and the smell of tire juice!
Great article!

Nicely laid out, great article! Thank you! I am a slot car promoter and its always pleasing to have great talent portrayed properly.

Slot Cars have been in the news more frequently than we think but this Charity Event may well put slot car racing in a better light than Pulp Fiction did ;) Combining a bazillion professional slot car tracks with celebrities from real and toying racing worlds while racing to help fight MS, well, just know that God will be watching so no intentional nerfing will be tolerated...

Did I hear 10 tracks? 12 maybe?! Theys gonna be some pavement pounding goin on and a mess a racing' too!
