I spotted this while shopping at Sam's Club.

 

They finally figured out Black was a good idea.

Raceway owners will be thrilled.

Well, when I bought two similar to those, they did have very dark grey. I bought white thinking the dirt would show

better for cleaning, but I am sure for working on shiney metal parts a darker color would be preferable. I bought 

the tables about 15 years ago.

My whole elation is based on them is looking decent for birthday parties, after being used as pit tables.

 

You can clean the white ones until the cows go home, and some spots aren't getting removed.

I thought later, I should mention where I saw it.

 

I edited it into my first post.

 

Sam's Club.

 

PS- I had a white one I was so appalled by, I actually tried to paint it black...... quite unsuccessfully. LOL

Great find, Mike!

 

We gave up trying to make the white tables look decent and opted for very cheap plastic table cloths.  One black and one white stayed with the Checkered Flag motif of our parties.
