I ran across this old article published in John Ford's magazine almost 10 years ago.... featuring our very own "Johnny Slotcar".

I recall reading race reports & seeing photos of this track either on here, OWH, or both. Does John still have this track?

Of course.  A three marshall bullring, but a lot of fun for 1/24th cars.  I was the "S" turn marshall on my knees in two of those shots.

I remember Dave Fiedler's description of racing on that track. He said it was like flying a rocket ship in a school gymnasium.
