What You'll Get


Unlike blue jeans or human heads, cars can still be useful to their owners when shrunken. Take a tiny spin with today’s Groupon to Mid-America Raceway in Downer’s Grove. Choose between the following options:

  • For $20, you get one hour of slot-car racing with rental equipment for two people (a $40 value).
  • For $39, you get one hour of slot-car racing with rental equipment for four people (an $80 value).<p>

Miniaturized motors emit falsetto whirs as they grip the banked curves of Mid-America Raceway’s wooden orange figure-eight track. Tiny drivers fight against armed troops of G-forces as they resist spinning out of control, reaching speeds of up to 30 miles per hour. Up to eight cars can go head-to-head under the watchful eye of a race marshal, who explains and enforces the rules of the road. Although not included in today’s Groupon, additional tracks span routes up to 155 feet with speeding descents, swerving chicanes, and a dead-man’s curve for settling action-figure rivalries.
