Looking for eight-lane track, 100' plus in run length. I'm in Arizona so closer the better. Starting slot car business here so an option on inventory would be a plus. 

 

Thanks.

I am a champ at finding tracks for sale during my wkend travels and racing,etc. Not making any $ here,just want to keep hobby going and keeping tracks from being destroyed.In your part of the US I think a good track deal would be an Ogilvie-built 8 lane 155' hillclimb (in storage) located in Lewiston,Idaho priced $1,000. I don't have name & phone at the moment,if any interest call me (309) 685-3582,(phone has no text or voice mail) for details,Dan Bremer,Peoria,Illinois.If I'm not home try again later. I really hope you'll own the raceway building or bargain rent...not much $ in the slot biz.

Hi Dan,

Thanks for the reply.  My son lives in Idaho Falls could make the trip a little easier to make.  Still working on space for the tracks (looking for 2).  Not looking to get rich, just trying to bring some recreation, something different to the town. Way to much video games and crap.  Thanks

Take a page out of Jim Honeycutt's(Magnatech Raceway in San Antonio) business model and have a video game or two in a back corner... they can go a long way towards keeping the lights on.

Hey Tex,  your right every little bit helps.  Just saying the young group needs to experience a little more than games on a tv.

Gotcha... I agree. But you might need to strike a balance between the old & new. Priority one is to keep the shop open; if it takes a video game or two to make that happen, then just be glad you've found a way to keep the doors open.
