Palouse Slots is up and running after a 9 month construction remodel project. A additional 800 feet were added to the existing building along with a handicap accessible bathroom and retail area. 

We are looking forward to seeing everyone this summer for the retro races starting in April. We will be using both tracks and alternating classes each month on each track. We will be racing CAN AM, COUPE, STOCK CAR , F-1. Practice will start at 9:00am and racing at 11:00am. Lunch will be provided along with some breakfast snacks.

If you have not attended one of Palouse slots races you are missing a fun group of guy's and girls that like to race and have fun.

If you have questions or need more info give me a call Leroy Sanders 509-432-1388. Below is the schedule. Depending on the head count some dates may change.

Awesome, Leroy. We just bought a house back in Spokane, and I plan to make most of these. Am SO excited at having you host races again!

Ken, which of these was formerly your home track? Was it the red walled one? Does your new home have space for a track?

Leroy,

Pictures look great, there is definitely more room to move around.

There is at least four guys looking forward to starting up again from the Tri-Cities.

That's just since last night getting the news!

 

(Ken's track is not the red track)

As John says, my former track is the other (blue and yellow edged) one. And yes, the new house has a triple car garage, with the 3rd bay extending 29'. That bay is reserved for a future track.

Ken, you must be designing the new track on paper now.  :D  I'll be watching the build posts when they come. Had you thought of building track sections than could be moved to provide different track layouts? Didn't you build a portable track, similar to that, which could be transported by a pickup truck or two?

Bill,

Yes, I built a track meant to be modular, and assembled into different configurations.  I sent it to Montana, with the intent that when the racers over there didn't want it anymore I could bring it back here.  But it lost its home, and at the time we had sold our home and were touring the country in an RV.  We offered to give it away but no one came to pick it up, so it went to the dumpster.

 

I still like the modular idea, but you really need the precision of a CNC routing job to make it work well.  At the moment I am thinking of a non-modular track.  We have two excellent tracks in Palouse, a little more than an hour away.  I am thinking of a track that would be different from those.  What I would dearly love is a track like Eddie Shorer has in CA, except with lane spacing for 1:24 cars.  He calls it a Boola King.  I am not competent to build such a track, however.  Watching for tracks that go on sale between now and summer, then will decide what to do.

Ken

Ken, I thought Eddie said his track was built by Bob Scott,  but I could be wrong. Bob lives in AZ now, but he posted on FB that he was done track building.
