    "Mid-sized" 6-lane reverse grandstand for sale in central Missouri

    Just starting out? Thinking about opening a commercial track? A thought for your consideration... MANY of your "Mini-mall" spots with that all-important "foot-traffic" that are anchored by a chain Grocery store, a Kohl's, or a Target, will offer "Small sq footage" additional store-fronts for you to rent, (40' deep x 20' wide is common) & HERE'S where this track shines. It's 116 ft in length, with a 31 x 16 footprint, (NOT for example, 48 X 26, or even bigger) so that you'll be able to have room for a fair amount of customers along with your track, WITHOUT having to rent TWO of these mall spaces, which then involves knocking out walls, long-term leases, Double RENT, & double utilities. (for Starters) yet it STILL has 4.5" lane centers, Xtra-wide turn outer-aprons, extra-high rubber covered walls (5") to help keep the cars ON the track, & OFF the floor, & in one piece. (We ALL been here...TRACK!.. then 1/2 a lap, & TRACK! then ANOTHER 1/2 lap, & you guessed it, TRACK!...good grief...) 8" vertical clearance between upper, & lower levels of the donut "overpass" to make pitting cars under the bridge a "job" as opposed to a nightmare... note the WIDE radius of the "Under the Bank" 180. MOST grandstands have some ridiculous super-narrow 12" wide radius turn there so you have to find some guy that's 5'11" & 98 lbs; who can actually pry himself into that miniscule narrow gap... It's a Custom-built Chris Dadd's product. Like BRAND NEW condition. NEVER been taken apart, NEVER been shoved into some musty/moldy old storage shed.. Original Braid, also like new... Currently set-up for you to test, & race on. Comes COMPLETE right down to the last extension cord. 42" Monitor. Lap-master computerized race system. NICE speakers with sub-woofer. 90 amp A/C power unit (no, it's NOT some automotive car-battery-charger) with group 30 battery that works perfect as a capacitor. Two separate power tie-ins, so there's NO "slow 1/2" of the track, even for high-amp cars. Built Especially so that custom extention's can be added to the 2 main straightaways. (Call Chris Dadds for that, as they are NOT included) Painted legs, (2 coats commercial-grade exterior paint) & green felt-covered infield, (1000$ of added cost for those 2 options) MANY MORE features, too many to list here. Don't forget the WAIT-TIME involved (A Year? maybe MORE, & roughly twice the cost, should you choose to buy NEW...) You'll need at least a long-bed pick-up, plenty of moving blankets, & be pulling a 16' x 8', or 20' x 8' "U-haul" trailer to fit it all... This AIN'T some battle-scared, wore-out, braid-ravaged, band-aid-fixed, that's been shoved into a moldy-storage-locker-for-10-years-going-gigantic-hunk-a-junk. THIS, is as good as it gets in a mid-sized, PRO BUILT, commercial-grade, good as NEW, feature-packed track, & if it don't sell, well, that's the way it goes. Call 573-302-4555 ask for Steve. 6,000$ CASH. & again, YOU Missouri racers, if you're interested in having large, "Come one, come all" festival-style races once or twice a year, CALL ME! `cuz nothing happens, & you think you got all the time in the world, & then POOF! it's GONE/SOLD, along with ANY hope of any "KC/St. Louis" shootout slot-car raphp?attachmentid=18037&d=1553567686[/IMG]
    cing for anyone.

    Just my 2 cents...

    Payout is not the primary draw for successful race programs. Just look at irra racing. Big turnouts. Big races. Big names. NO payout. Just end of series handouts, gifts and goody bags to series class winners and frequent racers. To have a successful race you will need to use existing rules so racers will already have cars ready or can confidently build them knowing they will pass tech when they show up. When Haruki and Team Tokyo show up at an irra Premier race they know their cars will pass tech. So in my opinion, clear consistent rules are more important than payouts.

    Oh, and food. If you have good food racers will show up. Race entry could include lunch.

    For a once or twice a year event, Food is no problem, bring in a grill, dogs, home-made chili for the dogs, burgers, chips, pop, beans.... As far as "Rules" go, the less the better. I'd suggest a "5-rule" class of: Brush-contained motor, Flexi chassis, No wings, No GTP bodies. Standard clearance and width rules, & there you go. But this is up to whoever steps-up to run the show... So this is ALL really just "Cart-in-front-of-the-horse" at this point, as I'm NOT going to be running this, PERIOD! I wanna RACE, NOT be a damn "Referee".... I'm just NOT going to get pushed into it. IF providing the building, the track, the food & the purse ISN'T "me chipping in my fair share"...... hmmm...... If NOBODY steps up to volonteer to be Racemaster, simply nevermind, & the whole post reverts back to "Track for Sale" so FIRST, & FOREMOST, I'm looking for a stand-up guy, who preferably has experience running a Lap-master, & knows the racing folks in KC, &/or St. Louie, to call me, & work something out... till then, "Track for SALE"....

    "Brush-contained motor"


    You're going to have to be more specific. There has been a bumper crop of new motors that that fall within that description. From hot drag only grenades to near Gp-l2 time bombs that will barely last 3 minute heats. If it will be any FK style b.c.m. then a "no chokes" rule is needed also. Or just limit to 65t/#30 wind b.c.m. motors.

    I've been "Out of the loop" for a few years, pretty much since 2014. Back then, "Brush-contained" meant Falcon, Hawk 7, or evil 9... I had different guys swearing by, & swearing AT one or the other, so I let all 3 go. I never noticed one or the other being any advantage over the other. BTW, back to the word "I'd SUGGEST"... If I can get a racemaster to step up, whatever class they think will bring in the most people to race, it's all on him. If he gets it done, he calls the class, & the rules. Standardized, or whatever works. I just have always liked the concept of whats cheap, fun, & Minimal.
