Rivershore International Raceway is located in Caledonia, just a few miles southeast of Grand Rapids.
It is a 175', four-lane Artin track,computer moderated, fully landscaped, club track. We meet once a month for class races. We run 1/32, slightly modified cars - change to better tires, magnets, with pull limted with MagnetMarshalls, add weight, etc. We run 32 historic car classes from the 1940's to current NASCAR/Le Mans. We have numerous loaners for those new to the hobby or those who don't have a full line-up of cars. Please contact fordgtmkiv at yahoo dot com for more info.


We have a second club track - GoodSpeed, located in Kalamazoo.
We are always looking for new members.

To be brutally honest with you, your questions here regarding club tracks near you are unlikely to generate many (or any) replies.




The small home-based clubs are usually largely uninvolved with/isolated from/not interested in being a part of the "mainstream" slot car "world" such as it is.


For example, the original poster in this thread has not logged onto Slotblog since mid-November 2015.


As much as it pains me to say this, you will probably have better luck going to Facebook and searching using keywords such as "slot racing [state]", etc.


I've pretty much given up on trying to list home/club/local raceways, as the vast majority of them are simply not interested in being visible within the framework of the overall model car racing hobby, which is itself (sadly IMO) fragmented to a very significant extent.

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

A Bing search on Rivershore International found an old SCI post with the name Steven Thomas and an email address of  sbbthomas@aol.com. I have no idea if the email address is still good or not. I also think I've seen the name Steven Thomas posted on the Home Racing World board. That might be the best place for the original poster to inquire.
