Saturday November 7 is our next race.
if you are going to the Allentown show, maybe come to the race early and try your hand at our drag racing!
there will still be plenty of time for you to get to the show.

This is a cross post from elswhere becauce I can't think of any other way of putting it!!

Outstanding!! Great people, and run right! Thank you Al and Hank for running and hosting a first rate event. Couldn't have asked for a more effieciently run race. Fanrastic first drag race for me!! And special thanks to you, Al-Pink, for that slug of a loaner car (<<<Kidding of course. Car was a beast! TQ and second place in class!) for stock AFX class. I appreciate all the tuning tips offered from the experienced folks as well. 2000 Mustang, this means you!! Patiently awaiting the next event! I'll be back with some better tuned cars, a scratch built car for shits n giggles, and more experience with the Pro Tree!

Hey Yellerstang, are you the fellow with the 2000 Mustang who helped me so greatly with the pancake tuning tips?? I can't think of any other racers who were related. If so, sorry I kind of missed you when you were leaving, and thanks again for the tips! I'm preparing a few cars for Echorr racing and the tips will help greatly.

on a near perfect fall day Saturday November 7 2015, fifteen dedicated slot car enthusiasts gathered at the Blue Comets Motorcycle clubhouse to engage in friendly competition on Hank's beautiful 1/64 scale WIZZARD EAGLE dragstrip.
seven fun classes of 1/64 drag racing were contested and the competition was serious yet friendly and fun.
G$, Joe, Dave, MAC, Jesse, Bill, Ed, Cordell, Kelvin, John, Darryl, Dominic, Jim, Hank and al participated in some lively qualifications and eliminations with some friendly "grudge match" challenges thrown in.
most of the guys are regular veterans to this event and we were happy to welcome back Jesse who brought his brother Dave.
in addition Dominic, who is no stranger to HO slot racing, came with SideJobJon(John) to establish his influence on our program.
a few of our regulars were sadly unable to make this event, but family comes first and we support them in that endeavor and decision.
these guys make the effort of hosting these events rewarding enough to want to do it more often.
there IS going to be a little change in the nature of our drag meets.
Hank expresses a desire to be more active with his teen son and will no longer provide his wonderful 1/64 scale 1/4 mile dragstrip.
however, I have an 1/64 scale 1/8 mile WIZZARD drag strip with TrackMate DP3000 timing system that is portable enough to carry on this fun tradition.
Hank will continue to make the Blue Comet clubhouse available for our events and plans on being able to make most of the races.
additional pictures from the event can be viewed at

I apologize for not having pictures of the many delightfully detailed drag cars that our competitors prepared for this event, it is completely my fault that I failed to capture the entire "flavor" of this event.
I am hoping that the guys will post up pictures of their cars to assist me in making a complete report of the days activities.
