5th Annual Springville Slotcar Club Summer Shootout 08/23/15

Woody Raceway, Springville NY

  
The 5th Annual Springville Slotcar Club Summer Shootout began on Saturday August 22, 2015, with an afternoon of practice on the 2 TKO tracks.  The Challenge here was to get 1 car that would perform on both tracks as the race format called for adding the scores from both tracks to determine the winner, no easy task!  After an afternoon of practice, we broke for dinner and then returned to the shop for an IROC race on the Blue Thunder TKO track with some Whelen ( Resin Dude Bodies) Autoworld cars prepped by Joel Lux, the cars were quick and challenging but a lot of fun and some cool wrecks. When the dust settled the IROC winner was Derek S and was awarded $25 donated by Warren Lux.
Sunday morning most of us met for breakfast at 7:30AM and the racing started @ 10 AM.  13 racers showed up for the SS event and the Nostalgia event.  The combined totals are listed below.
