    Nice Track, Nice race!

    Last night at Modelville Hobby I participated in my first Retro Race driving my "own" car - built by Dominator.

    We ran on a very sweet little track. The American Royal is 95 feet long and while lightly banked, it is a drivers track. Lap times: 4.0 to 4.7s. Ten Racers ran Coupe cars right to left with a very nice rhythm and flow.

    Sorry I do not know most of the guys names:

    1st place - Dom Luongo
    2nd place - Jim Stinnett
    3rd place - Richard Payne
    4th place - Mike (?)

    Here is a couple pics of the beautiful track. This track deserves a lot more racing.
