Buzz From The Track

By: Aaron Roed
March 26, 2015

In the past couple of weeks more single lap records, and distance records have fallen. Len Strand reset the LMP qualifying record at 4.03 seconds, just beating the record that Tim Blurgess held at 4.04 seconds. Len decided he wanted to show off a little and reset the distance record for GT 12, turning an amazing 373 laps. Len is 78 years young and it apperars he hasn’t quite hit the peak of his slot racing career yet!

Lee Gilbert now has the single lap record 4.49 seconds, and distance record 296 laps for the Nascar class. As everyone continues to fine tune their chassis and driving, the 300 lap barrier will come crashing down sooner rather than later.

Roman Ruiz continues to run very well in the amateur Nascar class, but is starting to get some serious pressure from the rest of the group. Look for racers Mark Nelson, Jim Nelson, Keith Bare, and Tristan Hyde to perhaps claim the top spot on the podium very soon. Newcomers Gene Caldwell, and Chris Alden continue to improve every week. This is one of the most exciting classes at PSCR. If you havent raced in a bit, and need some help tuning your car, come in early as there are many guys willing to help out.

Saturday April 4th is LMP and Group 10 racing. Already there is some chatter going around the raceway about the upcoming World Flat Track Championships held at Pacific Slot Car Raceways, which take place July 17-19. It’s a great opportunity to test your skills against racers from all over the country.


Track Records Crumble

By: Aaron Roed
March 12, 2015

Wednesday March 11th, the kids who participate in the weekly womp womp division were greeted with a freshly cleaned and glued track. Each kid has improved greatly as the season has progressed, and on this special night 2 long standing track records were broken.

Ashlyn Roed reset the distance record for the 9 and under group by turning 244 laps. Understanding the importance of running clean heats, and making sure she was in control of her car at all times led to this record breaking run. Ashlyn is 6 years old, and has her eye on moving up to the NASCAR class once dance classes are over in the Summer.

Tristan Hyde ran his car to the limit without crossing it on all 8 lanes. Tristan races in the 10 and over class, and ended up turning 269 laps, beating the old record by 6 laps. Not only is he really talented, but also displays great sportsmanship each week. Tristan drag races on Tuesday nights, and has a brand new NASCAR ready to go for this Friday.

Congratulations to all of the kids that participate in the womp womp class, as each of you are improving every week. This class is a fun, inexpensive way to spend time with your kids, and the great part about slot cars is that it’s an activity that both parents and kids can do together.

What Really Matters

By: Aaron Roed
February 26, 2015

Often times, we as racers get caught up in how fast our car is going,  where we finished in a race, or why we didn’t achieve our desired results. I believe having a competitive spirit is a good thing, not only at the track, but also in life. There are not too many happenings in life that inspire me (not sure why) but it seems like most of the time when I am inspired, it comes from a child.

Wednesday night, the kids race on the Bullring with their womp womp cars, and last night 3 little racers were in a tight battle for the lead going into the last 2 segments. As the 7th segment started, leader Tristan Hyde had a motor screw fall out ending his chance for the win. Kids have the same competitive spirit as adults do, and Tristan wanted to win that race. Having missed half of the segment Tristan’s car was repaired and went back on the track, not only trying to do the best he could, but also offering words of encouragement to the racers he was in a tight battle with. Dealing with disappointment is a part of our sport/hobby, and Tristan displayed great sportsmanship and maturity. Tristan is an 11 year old who drag races on Tuesday night, runs with the kids on Wednesday, and is getting started with the NASCAR class on Friday. Thanks Tristan for reminding me that results are not all that matters, and we come to the track to, yes, see who wins the race, but more importantly enjoy the free time we have in our lives racing cars with our friends.


Word Of The Week: Parity

By: Aaron Roed
February 18, 2015

In the 7 Nascar races that have been run this year, there have been 5 different winners. You can look up and down the drivers panel at the start of a race, and literally anyone of those drivers could win the race. It has definitely led to some phenomenal racing, as was the case this past week with Bill Clemans passing Lee Gilbert in the final 10 seconds to win the race.

Ray Bishop, and Craig Rieland came out to race last week, so there are 2 more guys that will be in the mix for a win. The Nascar class is racing this Friday (as always) at 7pm. If there is anyone who maybe hasn’t raced in awhile and needs some assistance getting their cars ready to race, come early as there are many guys willing to help out.

This Saturday is the start of the Spring/Summer series for 1/24 Eurosport, and GT 12. Racing starts at 3pm. See you at the track.


Clemans And Olive Win

By: Aaron Roed
February 9, 2015

Saturday February 7th was the start of the Spring/Summer Series for both LMP and Group 10. 14 drivers entered for the LMP race including newcomers  Roman Ruiz, Mark Nelson, and Jim Nelson.

The amateur race had 5 entries, it was great to have Rob Howden back at the track, taking a short break from his Karting duties, and Keith Bare was in action as well. Mark Nelson jumped out to the early lead is a brand new Speedshop built car and didn’t look back, as he lead all 8 segments for the win. Roman Ruiz was applying pressure through the 1st half of the race, then had a body pin come free, ending his bid for the win.

Expert LMP  had 9 entries including Madison Roed who was making her 1st start with the experts. The field was very fast in qualifying with Leonard Strand setting fast time at 4.08 seconds in a brand new car he built. With 7 of the drivers at a 4.26 or better, I think everyone knew the pace was going to be fast. Leonard was able to jump out to an early lead, followed by Dale Olive, and Jim Radford. Leonard led the 1st 3 segments, until he was overtaken by Jim in the 4th segment. Dale Olive decided he wanted to be heard from, and took the lead at the end of 6 segments. It set up to be a classic battle between Jim and Dale, but Bill Clemans was there to spoil the party. Bill decided it was time to get racey and came charging from his 3rd place running position to win the race by less than half a lap. Dale would hold on for 2nd, followed closely by Jim in 3rd.

Group 10 got underway with Dale Olive setting fast time at 3.70 seconds. As the race got going Aaron Roed led for the 1st 2 segments. Dale would take the lead after the 3rd segment and not look back. When you pair Dale’s driving ability with a great car, that is a hard combination to beat, and that was the case in this race. Aaron and Bill Clemans would have a good battle for 2nd, and in the end it was Bill’s consistency that earned him his 2nd place finish. Aaron would struggle with his driving and finish 3rd, ahead of Leonard Strand, and Dr. Korsky who retired early due to motor and gear issues.

Coming up this week at the track is the kids weekly womp womp racing on Wednesday Night. Practice starts at 5pm, with racing starting at 6. There is a class for kids aged 10-16, and kids 9 and younger. Parents have a great time watching their little ones race around the track, and from time to time a parents race breaks out after the kids are done.   On Friday the weekly Nascar class is back in action on the Twister. Leonard is looking for back to back wins, but he has to fend off a large group of contenders.


Nascar results January 30

By: Aaron Roed
February 6, 2015

Friday night we had 17 entries in our Nascar class. 9 amateurs lined up for the 1st race of the night, with 6 yr old Ashlyn Roed racing in her 1st race, and youngster Cristian Evans making a return to the raceway. Roman Ruiz jumped out to the early lead, followed by Mark Nelson, and Mark Kanzler. Midway through the race Roman had some mechanical issues and his lead had shrunk to 1 lap over Mark Nelson at the end of 5 segments. In the 7th segment Mark Kanzler had an issue with his car, and wife Sherri showing no mercy took full advantage to overtake the 3rd spot. Roman held on for the win, Mark Nelson, who is on the verge of winning one of these races finished second, and Sherri came home third.

8 experts came out to race on this fine night. Congratulations to 11 yr old Madison Roed,as she has joined the expert group. Qualifying was very tight, as the field was separated by just .16 of a second. The 2 Speedshop cars were at the top, with Dale Olive turning a 4.64 second lap, and Lee right behind at 4.66 seconds. When the race started Lee jumped out to the early lead followed by Dale, and Leonard Strand. Things stayed about the same until the 6th segment when Lee fell out of the race, and Aaron Roed found himself in the lead. There were multiple lead changes in the final 2 segments as each of the top 3 drivers had to overcome adversity. In the end it was ” The King” Dale Olive  taking the top spot, followed closely by Leonard, and Aaron, All 3 drivers finished on the same lap. Ross Korsky drove a consistent race to finish 4th, and Bill Clemans fought handling issues to finish 5th. Yet another night of close competitive racing in both divisions.

Nascar is raced every Friday night at 7pm. Saturday Feb. 7th is the start of the Spring/Summer Series for LMP and Group 10 with racing starting at 3pm.
