Slot car track
Come on out to Chicagoland Raceway for a day of Slot Car Racing and hanging out with MINI friends on Sunday February 24th!!

WRAPUP:  We had a dozen racers and several spectators out for a really fun event..  Two groups of six competed in an 8 race series running a race in each of the different lanes to even out any differences in cars or lane position.  The top two in each head went on to a shorter final series.  First and second heat winners were Ken and Brent.
The overall combined winners went to next-gen CMMC members.. Payton with the win and Cole with a close second place.
