Not really ours. Belongs to my best friend. The two of us built it together over the winter. Finished it Feb. and I just realized I never posted any pictures so here are a few.

It's four-lane, 61' on longest lane. Really fun little track. Can't wait until the weather cools off so we can get back to racing. Just too hot in his shop right now.

Future plans are to build a winch system so we can raise it up to the ceiling when not in use and when he needs his shop space. We hadn't built a track in over 15 years. I really enjoyed building it. I also made him the edge-lit sign for his wall.

Don,

You should... you have one!

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

Thanks, Don. I love the term "basement bullrings"!
