This was my first visit to North Chesterfield Va. to race on Nelson Torrey's six lane routed track. Little did I know he has a slot racing mega-plex. He has an HO routed and sectional track, 1/32 track and a Riggen track. This was all on two floors. His slot car collections were on display everywhere and according to the sign posted none were for sale. Anyway my experience on this track was entirely different as compared to the Lunacy in New Hill NC. If you're interested then click the "Read More" link.

Press and Pass
There are times in a race when you are challenging an opponent that might have a slightly faster car and/or might demonstrate a slightly better skill set with respect to racing. Do not throw in the towel... there just might be a way or a racing strategy that will help you to place ahead of this competitor. You might want to use a "Press and Pass" strategy.
This article is about some slot car racing basics. This is not all inclusive, but, it should help beginners to get started and help refresh those of you that are experienced.
Some people say that the first rule of slot car racing is concentration. Being able to focus on your car and it's surroundings as it moves around the track. Some of you might say "Well Duh!!". However it is more difficult than you think. Scientists have determined that we now have a shorter attention span than a goldfish. Think about that one for a minute, if you can.
