Attached is the report of the 1969 Western States Race as published in Model Car Science, November 1969.


This was published on another forum that members here probably do not have access to. I straightened the pages and did some color correction.


Hope you enjoy.

Couldn't remember the name of the track Speed'n'Sport Lynwood, CA. Thats the track I visited when I first tried slot cars, I lived in neighboring city South Gate, CA. Thanks for the History lesson.
