This is an article that appeared in the Los Angeles Times on Nov. 24, 2017, but I don't think it's ever been mentioned here.

And since it is still online and since several Slotblog members are featured and quoted, it's worth a post.

 

Really nice video (which I am unable to embed here) at the start. Haruki will like the T-shirt Ed Shorer is wearing in it.

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

Interesting article. A good blurb for slot racing in general.

 

But I wish Discovery Channel would show the doc they made at Chicagoland. Or we Yanks could at least see it.
