Sending my best wishes to friends and neighbours competing in the "American Extravaganza" at Modelville Hobby in Ashland, MA, this weekend...

 

Rick Stagen, Dave Geehring, Sano Dave Fieldler, Mike "Raisin" Garrett, Nelson Swanberg, Bob Foster, Rich Attee, Dan Myers, Ron Hershman, and Willy Custer.

 

I understand at least one race will be on the circa 1965 220 foot lap length "Purple Mile"; that will be a race report that I will read with great interest.

I have to post this photo from Rick Stagen of Dave Fiedler running his vintage Cox "La Cucuracha" on Modelville Hobbies' "Purple Mile". That huge grin says it all!

This kind of fun should be what slot car racing is all about.

 

<edit> Here's another with "The Two Daves"  (Fiedler and Geehring) playing with their 'Cucs!

Thanks for posting that video clip, MG. Just watching and listening to the cars told me a lot. Is there a live link for updates or anything for this race?

Mike- I don't believe that there was any live coverage or net video of the event. :(
 
However Rick "SPR" Stagen has provided this video of David Fiedler in the last heat of his Can-Am race.

Rick must have removed the video- sorry about that.
