She was a great person, fun to race with and always nice to be around. She is a great loss to P.A. and the whole slot racing community. Co-owner with husband P.A. Watson of Pasadena Slot Car Raceway, Slot Cars of Katy, and now Slot Car Raceway LLC and Jet tires, they celebrated her 80th birthday and 35 years in the business this past October.

Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap

If you have the time, you could go by and watch the front of the shop so he can go back and work on tires.
For those not close to Houston, he sells great tires and paints great bodies; you could always order something.

Remember, two wrongs don't make a right... but three lefts do! Only you're a block over and a block behind.

Very sad to hear.
Kathleen and P.A. made a great team.
May she Rest in Peace.

Do you have a link to the store please? I only know of P.A. through the magazines but would like to contribute something.
A full raceway or lots of orders to ship could be the best medicine.

Best wishes for PA in his time of loss. I'll always remember her as a fierce competitor and a class act.

Take care, P.A., and remember the good times.
Hello my name is Barney and I was... I am addicted to glue, magnets, and wings... I have been clean and sober years now... NOW I'm hooked on 1/32 club track racing! Dang!
"Even if you're on the Right Track, you'll get run over if you just sit there!"
If you remember screw-on braid, motors that look like padlocks, that dang fuse wire in Cox controllers, "hand" painted bodies, the very first can motors from Mabuchi, and the smell of wintergreen then you are OLD!... like me!
Enjoy life! Race Slot Cars and read SlotBlog!

She painted PA's bodies, didn't she?
I had one once that was an absolute masterpiece of a wing body, measured and labeled for exact length.
