    Sunday’s race was a huge success. Both Scalextric NASCAR and Slot.it Group C was won by Greg Walker, owner of The Race Place, from Holly Hill. Making the trip with Greg was his sidekick Phill and the honorable Jim Smith. Bob DeWoody, owner of DeBary Glen Raceways, served as our guest Tech Director for this race. All of our local racers welcomed our guests with a spirited race run with the CRASH and BURN tradition that occasionally resembled a CRASH Derby a little too often. Boys will be boys, after all. Thanks to all the racers that made this first race of the Jacksonville Slot Car Club a very memorable event. Thanks, also, to Jacksonville’s Slot Car Raceway and Hobbies who had their “Florida Orange” track in tip top condition. Slot Car Raceway and Hobbies is the home track for the Jacksonville Slot Car Club.
