    Track Updates

    I have updated my track somewhat. The driver's stations now have color coded plaques and bar stool seats. The fuses for each lane were replaced with manually resettable curcuit breakers and there are now XLR connectors along with the original screw post connectors. Track power is now coming from two 20 amp Mastech power supplies, each one does two lanes.

    Nice!! I'd like to run on that!!! I live in EH and we race primarily t-jets, we should have a non race track day. Just some goofing around and what not. We have a track also and could always use some more "racers".

    I have installed a couple of strings of blue LED Christmas lights on the ceiling to use when I run night races.

    East Haven Raceway now has Trackmate. There is a 20 inch monitor at the back of the table.

    Update

    I got ambitious and stained the table and gave it a finish coat of polyurethane. All of the graphics have been redone.

    I grew up watching beat-up modifieds slipping in and out of the lights around decrepit West Haven Speedway, and to me, nothing makes oval track racing look better than lights. Nice work, RichD.
