$6,000 for the Pulp Fiction Lazy 8.

It must come with Uma Thurman. LOL.

It's not even "the" movie track. Now where do I get one of those $5 milkshakes?

I believe they still have a Hillclimb and they made an indoor R/C track where the King was. Seems like they are focusing more on R/C then slots.

Those three tracks would make a perfect raceway. Retro and wing on the King, Retro and scale on the figure 8, and modifieds on the oval.

$14K for the King would probably be a record for a used track.

Both Dallas Slot Cars and SpeedZone PTC dumped their state of the art Gerding Kings after hosting the USRA Div 1 Nats.

 

What the heck is going on here? :o

It's a pattern that has occurred for a fairly long time.

 

Hold a Nats, close shortly afterwards.

But they aren't closing.

 

Just focusing on holding more R/C races.

 

They are still keeping the Hillclimb.

They are putting in a carpet R/C oval where the King was.

I was in PTC two weeks ago and the King was still up and running. They told me the carpet track would go in when the King sold. Things can change in two weeks but the Hillclimb will be the only track soon.

I probably should have said "Close or downsize after holding a Nats."

IMO if Rich sticks closely to his asking price, that King will be there a long time...

To be more precise, you would add "change focus."
 
It certainly has happened in the 2000s, with Chickz and Tulsa (they may have moved once before they closed), but it was more common in the '90s.

At least they kept the Hillclimb which IMO was the best track they had!
