Racing dates back to ancient Greece, where chariot races around city walls settled disputes over farming rights and which philosopher had the best beard. Witness the fairest system of justice with today's Groupon for a slot-car-racing outing at ASR Indoor Motor Sports Raceway in Longwood. Choose between the following options:
- For $7, you get an hour of racing, including car and controller rentals, for one (a $14 value).

ASR Indoor Motor Sports Raceway pits miniature cars against one another on a fixed track—1/8 of a mile long—during retro-style competitive races. Models from manufacturers such as Scalextric re-create authentically styled Fords and ad-emblazoned NASCAR vehicles, calibrated at 1:24 or 1:32 scale to comfortably seat a pet mouse or an accidentally shrunken relative. Alternatively, flattened vehicles, optimized for small-scale speeding, boast fiery paint jobs and recently steamrolled Looney Tunes characters as drivers. Competitive siblings, neighbors, and off-duty buddy cops hash out their conflicts along the fine grooves of the Lilliputian speedway, carefully controlling their speed around turns to steer electric racers to victory. For the slot-car enthusiast, ASR Indoor Motor Sports Raceway also carries mini-car parts and add-ons for personal optimization.
