A big thank you to Leroy Sanders and his lovely wife for hosting a fantastic inaugural 2021 race.  For many of us it was our first racing experience since late summer of 2019.  In the meantime, Leroy expanded his building and moved all three tracks (the third being the HO layout), allowing for more room to maneuver and more pit space.  He also added a restroom, making it a true standalone facility.

 

In my 50+ years of slot car racing, I think I can say that I have never been in a better environment for a race.  It has the warmth and personal touches of the finest club, but the amenities and supplies of a commercial raceway.  It doesn't get much better than this.  Thanks again.

 

On to race results.  We had 6 racers, plus two extra volunteers for marshalling.  We ran two races on my old track, where I was pleased to discover that the old "home track advantage" still lingers.  The other two races were held on Leroy's track, which my fellow Spokanite Paul Dwyer found very much to his liking.

 

Bot tracks started off good, but a bit slick, then sped up as we laid down some rubber.
