Guys, if everyone that is busy on this thread would just pick a state in the Slotblog list and vet the tracks listed, we can have an up-to-date list. Visit the Facebook pages or web pages listed. They usually either disappear or state that the track is closed if it is gone. When you know of a track opening... send it to Greg in a message. One person can clean up two or three states in 15 or 20 minutes. Much less time than has been invested in this thread.

Are you suggesting Slotbloggers go to Facebook, gather raceway info, then feed it to Greg?

If you are responding to my comment then, yes, I am suggesting we do some of the legwork and check these tracks for viability. That is, those who are interested in these things.

I've done a few. It's not hard or time-consuming and actually interesting to track down which tracks remain and which one's slipped quietly into the darkness that we were unaware of.

For example... I randomly selected the last group of states ending in Z. I selected Virginia and then John's Raceway in Boykin.  there is no link so I googled him and found a Facebook page. https://www.facebook...56674131793463/
 
That can be added to the page and he has a post stating he is closed until Oct 21, 2021, so he is still viable.
 
It's that easy.

FWIW, I 'mine' Facebook for entries to add the Raceway List all the time. In fact, it's probably the number one source for new entries.

Obviously, I don't find them all. And, as Phil pointed out, even using Facebook as a source for accurate data is not perfect.

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

If you ever do shut the list down, please give us a heads up beforehand so we can print the parts we need? Thanks Greg

Don't even suggest that.  Let's just help him keep it current.
