Stopped at Bakers and posted that info here about 2 years ago.  We had to clean the track before we could  run any cars.  It had probably not been used for months before we stopped.    That said, he is a nice guy and we played guitars and enjoyed a good visit.   He also sells guitars and works on motorcycles.


I think he really enjoyed having some knowledgble guys there running slot cars;

Slot car track, guitars and motorcycles! Who wouldn't be happy with that?

I'll get these added to the Raceway List when I get in town on Friday.

Evacuated to TN for a couple of days to await power and internet restoration at home...

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