Another month, another update. This time making starter set cars quicker and helping folks get just the kit they want.

Justin:  will we see drag racing at Haven again at some point in the future?  It seems to be so popular in the mid-south, but we don't have much by way of organized drag races in N.E. Ohio.  It seems to me that, because of the modeling aspects and the youth friendly nature of 1/24 drag racing, it offers one of the few areas of potential growth for our hobby.

Unfortunately, for the forseeable future drag racing won't be returning to Haven Raceway and Hobby. The amount of retail space we had to commit to the dragstrip simply couldn't be justified in the end.

However, I do agree with you that the modeling and scale aspects are valuable to the hobby, as are a reasonably priced entry point. To that end, Dad and I have been evaluating a breakout H&R Hardbody class in the same vein as the already popular classes at Bullit.
