Friday night at the "To be Named" Arrendale Speedway!

Postby TuscoTodd » Sun Oct 22, 2017 5:11 pm

Friday night was filled with fun and laughs as three HRW members (APalmer, Slot Therapist and myself) made the trip north to Cuyahoga Falls, OH to run on Rick Arrendale's new 4-lane track!

(The track is so new Rick hasn't even decided on an official name for it yet!)

Details:
- Track: Freshly delivered MaxTrax 4-lane layout
- Table: 4'x12' with custom driver stations (using Slot Car Corner controller hook ups)
- Timing: Trackmate IR timing.

The racers and cars were:
Our host - Rick Arrendale and his gold Camaro

Which unfortunately, experienced a mechanical issue mid-race and was swapped out for an metallic orange Camaro:

HRW's APalmer and his green and gold Cougar:

Image


Bill Graffius and his orange and white Camaro:

Russell May and his blue and yellow Challenger:

And yours truely with a green Maverick:

The skinny tire t-jets were right at home on this smooth track with a LOT of great back and forth / door to door action!

The second class of the evening were Super Stock T-jets (FRAY type)

We had the same crew of racers for this race as the first - and after a quick switch of cars - the field was made up of the following...

Rick Arrendale and his pink Ferrari

Image


HRW's Slot Therapist and his yellow and black Camaro

Image


Steve Reed and his red and black Audi

Image


HRW's APalmer and his Sunburst GTO

Image


Bill Graffius and his blue Lambo

Image


Russell May and his red and yellow Lotus

Image


And yours truly with a red and yellow swirl NSX

Image


With everyone having a race under their belt - the competition really ramped up good with the quicker, stickier Super Stocks!

Excellent food, friends and laughs! It doesn't get much better than that!

Awesome report! Nice to get back into a hobby forum again. I used to follow a couple other forums until they loaded up with ads. This one is nice.

What a great report. That’s how it’s done!

Road trips are fun. Especially to help run in a new track. Looks like you will be on the road more often.

Nice track to say the least.

WOW! Good luck to the proud new speedway owner.
Cool design, a Quad Oval with road course infield. The table color nicely sets off the track, too.
Happy to see the only FORD in that field of T-Jets take home the trophy - I've got two of those Road Race Replica Mavericks myself.
A street style one like yours (mine's Red) for road racing, and a Grabber Blue drag car body kit for the 'strip.
Looks like FUN! Thanks for the photos, and... Enjoy, guys! -- Ernie :>)
