No, I don't. I live close to Lebanon, Ohio but have never heard of Custom Raceways Inc.

 

The guy who might know is Steve Deiters, he worked for REH and the business he has now is in Lebanon, Ohio.

My father got the track when he was a kid, he is now 63. Paul Hubble from the slot shop help him find it. My father doesnt remember if it was new or used. My guess is that was 40 plus years ago so the track is 40+++ years old.....

I think Custom was a commercial race track company.    Probably that home style track was advertised in the slot mags of the 60's.    I might look thru some mags and see what I can find.   Nice that it is still together.  Are the legs plain steel pipe?

Tony, I will see what I can find out.   A few days ago I was paging thru an old slot mag and there were 3 ads for tracks like yours.   If I can find that same magazine, I will check those ads.   Revell made a similiar track,  Strombecker made them and maybe 2-3 other companies.   Custom just seems to sound familiar to me as a track manufacturer.
