For a bit of explanation, one of my other hobbies is that I host a show on YouTube discussing old Japanese cartoons. LOL.

 

For fun and promotion, my friend Mike and I decided to put together a quick video showing off Haven. Enjoy!

Great video Justin! If I didn't know better, I would have thought it was a professionally made presentation promoting slot car racing. It sounds as if you got a great shop & know how to run it well. :)

Great Track and great video. Need some info on the Ohio Challenge dates, and info on your weekly races and cars you race. Will be visiting in October to my wife's hometown of Elyria. Thanks, Tim

Not a problem Tim. During October we'll be into our Fall weekly program which will be Ohio Challenge Cup GTP on Wednesday nights at 7:00pm and Ohio Challenge Cup GT1 and IRRA Can Am on Sundays at 3:00pm.

 

The Ohio Challenge Cup itself will be at Haven on September 23rd, while in October on the 21st the OCC will be at HMS Speedway in Bellevue (about 40 minutes west) running on Kit Henry's American Blue King.

 

We'd be glad to have you join us!

Our shop is 28 x 75 with a finished basement of the same dimensions which we're currently renovating with the intentions of using it for a sales and layout area for model railroaders. :)

Local guys be smart and support this nice shop and owner with a great attitude.     Nice track, I'm sure it's fun to race on.     Great plan for the basement.   Maybe having a local model RR'ing club build a layout is a good idea.   Provide the space and  have a monthly fee which would be more than reasonable.   Maybe that would translate into more upstairs business, too.     What can be better than an open house at Christmas with invites to churches and clubs to see the trains and maybe realize what fun can be had with models, slots, and trains.  

 

Good luck.
