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.

Mid-America Raceway

Mid-America Raceway's slot-car facility stocks everything from parts and paints to motors and controllers. These items include JayGee controllers, Falcon motors, Open-12 chasses, and Sonic gears that enable miniaturized drivers to shift quickly through sharp turns. Elsewhere, the shop's winding racetracks buzz with activity during races, as new and experienced racers test their skills while precise electronics track their lap times. Staff members—including the shop's track dog, Marshall—also host special events for racers of all ages.
