    What are you searching for?
    There's a directory here and also on Slotblog.

    Is there something in particular you can't find?

    Are you actually looking for something in particular?

    If you are looking for info about a raceway, or trying to locate raceways near you...
    why not simply post your question here, so that maybe someone can post the info you need?

    Or are you simply trying to be a troll???

    I checked my database... but didn't find any raceways located near where you live: "in a van down by the river".

    No... I have not found a suitable replacement for the Raceway Directory that does not require inputting all of the raceway info
    by hand yet. Along with the fact that the raceway directory will need another serious round of updating,
    since raceways rarely submit or provide updates or info.

    It's on my list... but still a ways below many more pressing issues.

    I'm just a guy stuck here in the Midwest who doesn't have the luxury of a track in my hometown. I have to travel two to five hours away to have somewhere to race on the weekends. I used your track directory years ago and found the map and information very helpful, but have had to rely on other sources recently.

    Are you wasting our time? How about providing at least the town where you live and let us try to be helpful. Are you in the witness protection program?

    I just tried the search with no success and I KNOW of three raceways and more than four club tracks within 100 miles of me. I live in the old folks home next to the river....
    Milwaukee, Westmont, and Desplaines. Great Lakes (1/32)Slot Car Club has tracks in Crystal Lake, Plainfield, Elmhurst, and Chicago ....and others.
    Bloomington and the western Il tracks are bit further than 100 miles and they did not turn up either.

    This "Down by the River" sounds like a washed up - want to be racer.

    Let's see if he chimes in.
    Sincerely,

    Are you wasting your time? From the tone of the responses here...Yes.
