    As per Shawn’s update this weekend – Tom plans to name the track/business ‘Capitol Slot Cars’ or something similar. Lets plan to show him some support and get the other locals “primed” by hosting an ad-hoc race there some Sat or Sunday afternoon during his Grand Opening period.

    Absolutely amazing.  That will be one of the nicest facilities in the States.  I can’t wait to see it with the tracks in it.

    Wow, the full lighting, and heating/ac vents will really be welcomed.  Thanks for the effort.  Reminds me of the deluxe  California facility I used in the mid-60’s.

    Those air vents sure look good save me a spot. Look forward to racing there.

    First track going in is a flat track but not very many turns.
