Seven competitors showed up to race Flexi and OSCAR spec Jalopies at STR on 5/25/2020. This was the first post Covid 19 race to be held at STR. Some of the regulars felt is was still a bit too early to open and chose to stay home. Here, in Douglas County, Oregon there have been only 28 confirmed cases of Covid  19 and no deaths. I think that over the next month or so, we will get back to a new normal. As any responsible club or business, prudent precautions were taken at STR. Everyone was required to wear masks and social distance to the extent possible. Below are results and images

Seven in each class looks like a great turnout for the first race back.

 

Congratulations.

Cool beans!

 

The cars are amazing! Do you have details on the cars in each class? Are the bodies lexan, hardbody kit or vendor prepped? Inquiring minds, you know, want to know!

 

Also, is there more info on the track? Some pics to add to the SlotBlog entry? I may be missing a thread somewhere, but the only track pic I found is the gray surface build project. The track looks resurfaced in black in the above pic...

 

Congratulations on reopening!

STR is located in Roseburg, Oregon. It is a private track. The same guys race at STR and Electron Raceway. STR races classes that are to OSCAR specs (for the most part).  There are some exceptions including Econos, ProTrack and GT1). The OSCAR spec cars are scratch built brass and wire, inline, hinged jobs.  Rear wheels are .790. The Econos are also scratch built but run with 1+ inch rears and although the chassis are scratch built and inline they have only a side to side or rattle motion. ProTrack classes use the old brass ProTrack or newer H&R chassis. The GT1 (which we run at Electron) use modified Production, H bracket chassis such as Plafit, Scaleauto, Scholer, etc.

 

Here is a link on slotblog showing classes and the track

Also, check out results - see the link and select a race. Many more images of the cars

http://slotblog.net/...r-race-reports/

 

BTW all classes except for Flexi use plastic model or in the case of Can Am resin bodies

 

Members paint and decal their cars. 

 

If you like the Jalopies you might also like Electron Raceway's Early Modified class. It uses the Econo chassis with 32 to 48 bodies.
