Original post made on Feb 29, 2008

My kids and I have been to Shaunadega Raceway for a birthday party. Its great fun and the kids had a blast. There's so much noise and excitement and the kids got so competitive. They got certificates and balloons to take home at the end of the party. Check it out, you won't be sorry.

When I was a kid we were addicted to our local hobby shop, models, rockets, slot cars, etc.. The community needs more diversions like this to occupy kids hands and minds.
