Our next NJ Vintage race will be on Thursday evening June 20 at: The Race Place, 1151 Rt-33, Farmingdale, NJ 07727  732-938-5215. Raceway opens at 6pm, racing to start at 7pm. $5 race fee.   

 

1) Mid-'60s era 36D-powered cars, any manufacturer production inline or sidewinder chassis, any body, stock motors.

  Not allowed: scratchbuilt or pan chassis.

 

  if enough time the second race:

 

2) American Line Sportsman/Hot Rod kit cars- also 36D-powered cars

 

 

 

Our Vintage racing series will add a few more classes soon: 36D production anglewinder, vintage Jail Door, early 70's anglewinder. Will test the ProSlot PS-4001s for the jail door and 70's anglewinder classes. We currently hold monthly races at Dom's Raceway in Cream Ridge on Saturdays and The Race Place on Rt. 33 in Farmingdale on Thursdays, alternating months. As more racers join in for the fun we will move around to other raceways.

 

We also participate in the C.A.R.S. Vintage Slot Car Club which meets on the first Thursday night of each month at The Race Place in Farmingdale for all things related to all scales of vintage slot car collecting, restoring, and more. Feel free to join in with us and check out what we are doing at any of our events.

 

   The Vintage Races are more for fun than all out competitive racing, as we all respect each others cars and try to avoid crashing them, and at the same time, you can tune any of these 50+ year old cars to perform well. The American Line kit cars, which are more of a retro car kit with a nos 36D motor, are the ones we tend to race harder. Our way to revisit mid 1960's racing with real vintage cars on real vintage tracks. 

 

NJ Vintage races are sponsored by NJ Scale Racing.

after looking again at the cars raced last month, i see that there is one Corvette, 2 Cheetahs, and the rest are Thingies! A few of these cars use repop bodies- the rest are originals!! And my favorite rear tire choice in 36D vintage racing are the soft compound Candies. For those who plan to check out our Vintage Racing series, there are always a few loaner cars available.

 

  Wanna race Vintage, but go faster than a 1966 era big can car? Stay tuned- Vintage Anglewinder and Jail door classes are coming, using new and more powerful motors. So for you Retro racers, we will have a classes  that should be right up your alley.
