The way I see it, Retro racing allows its racers to follow a set of written rules to display his ability to design, build, and prove that,"Anything can be made to be better and faster than it has been in the past."

Brian,

You certainly proved that last night. Sweeping the night at PJ Raceway. Two well-deserved and long-awaited wins. Killed 'em in Stock Car. Then backing that up with the F1 win.

Congratulations on your first two IRRA® wins.

Retro racing has proven itself to be one of the most fun and competitive slot racing programs ever and has helped slot racing and the industry stay alive, also bringing  back people to the sport who have not raced in years to enjoy it as never before... :good: 
 
In the begining... West Coast D3 & East Coast Retro.

The term "Murderer's Row" comes to mind actually...

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

As I said before, just a bunch of recycled teenagers.

The only thing bad about Retro is admitting that you remember doing it originally.
