Slot car magic

Original post made on Mar 4, 2008

Those who remember Slot Car City know that it provided a perfect after-school activity until it closed in the late 1990s. These days, there's only one serious slot car track left in Mountain View: Shaun Lee's private "Shaunadega."

I'm new to slot car racing but not to NASCAR and I LOVE this track! Shaun is a great host with both adults and kids as I have been there for one of his birthday parties. I've never been to THE Talladega track but I am betting that Shaunadega is an exact replica! The details on this track are amazing all the way from the cars painted with their sponsors to Pit Road with the pit crew members with all their little tools. Again, I don't really know that much about slot car racing but Shaunadega is a great place to start - either as a new hobby for yourself or even introducing the hobby to your kids and I think Shaun is an awesome teacher. He has a great sense of humor and is really patient with the kids at the parties he hosts as well as the occasional adult who is new to slot car racing. I'll definitely be back!
