    Hi Gang
    I didnt build this track, we actually "rescued" it from the local raceway here in Daytona. Its named, "The Bellflower" by its builder. They said they were gonna get rid of it, and my wife and I made (a rather silly low) offer, and wound up with it. Its 18 feet long by 4 feet wide. The dilema came in getting it home, because the table wan not built to be taken apart......EVER! Well, after rounding up a friends race car trailer, we (it took 6 guys to lift it and walk it into the trailer) we got it home safe & sound. It was built in 1990 and many local state, regional & national HO races have been run on it. This pic here is how it looked at the local raceway before we took it home. Thanks to Goodyear for the "blimp shots"

    This is the "spectator & grandstand" area. You can see the ticket office, food consessions, "cut away" car for the fans, t shirt shack, kiddy playgrounds and the restrooms.

    Hi Gang
    I hope you enjoyed the tour of the Bellflower. We have run many countless laps on it also since we brought it home.
