    “This is a meeting place for people interested in racing the vintage Aurora Thunderjet slot cars from the '60s. We are called TRACK which stands for Thunderjet Racing Association of Central Kentucky.”
  • Yarker Memorial Raceway
    A 1/32nd site that is also the home of S.P.T.S. also known as Simple Photocell Timing System. “S.P.T.S. is an electronic timing system for 1/32nd slot car racing. It is meant for the “Do-It-Yourselfer”. We developed this product using the KISS principal (Keep It Simple Stupid). If you have a home track and like playing with computers and simple electronics... this is for you! The cost is negligible. You do the work and you supply the wires, computer, photocells etc. We supply the know how, the software and any advise you need along the way. S.P.T.S works just as well for 1/24th and 1/64th scale (HO) tracks too. The smaller, lightning fast HO scale cars require greater sensitivity from the PhotoCells, but our instructions show you how to measure and tune your timing system to handle virtually any car.”
