    9th Annual Gaithersburg 1100 at SpeedZone, 10 October 2020


    Here we go again with the newest date for the 9th Annual Gaithersburg 1100. It will take place on October 10, 2020, at SpeedZone Slot Car Raceway, Mt-Holly, NJ. We have confirmed this date with Mic and he assures us the Engelmann will be prepped and ready. The race will be the same format of 1/24th scale JK F1/Indy cars (narrow) and then 1/24th scale 4 NASCAR stock cars. As of now there will be no changes in motor rules or chassis rules.

    Tony Moore and I look forward to seeing you there...

    Do you have any results from the race and pictures that Tony took?
    I've done so much with so little for so long it seems like I can do anything with nothing at all.
