I-55 Speedway Southaven MS

My son and I build a 4 lane routed wood oval track. We where introduced to slot car racing a couple years ago and where instantly hooked. Unfortunately the track we where racing on was in a hobby shop here in town, but they decided to close up shop and so went the track. We did find another track a little over 80 miles away and make the trip several times but ultimately decided to build our own track in our garage. We plan to "club" race as often as possible. We are located about one mile from Interstate 55 in North Mississippi. So I-55 Speedway was a perfect name for our track. The track is 15x5 with a Pyramid Power supply, Trackmate Dead Strip Lap Counter and Professor Motor Controllers.

Always good to see another oval. Are you racing with Andy or Joe Jr ?

Nice track...

Truly sorry for it's location....

I'm a native Memphian that got out and moved east to the mountains 10 years ago.
What use to be Shelby County Raceway is now Washington County Raceway, located
just 15 mins from Bristol and Thunder Valley.
Slot on, Dudes.........1320 and counting.....

Ok great. Tell those guys I said hello. They are kinda slow and get in the way on the track, but not bad guys :)

You said it's a work in progress, looks like it's ready to go, just needs some rubber lines.
