Winner of the Daily Herald’s Readers’ Choice 2011 award for best car wash, Raceway Car Wash and Detailing plies and pampers weary autos with award-earning soft-cloth car washes and meticulous detail packages. During each 10- to 15-minute deluxe exterior wash, soft cloths liberate paint and chrome from roadway grime, oily deposits, and old Datsun tattoos before deft hands whisk away lingering moisture with thirsty towels. An undercarriage wash combs the car’s undersides for asphalt-born buildup, a wheel-shine rim cleaner grooms the tires, and applications of clear-coat sealer wax gild the shell in a glossy element-repelling shine. Technicians then tidy up the whitewalls and rims, giving wheels a fresh sparkle and sense of highway swagger.
Deft technicians commence Raceway Car Wash and Detailing’s ultimate detail with a thorough tar and grease removal and hand-administer a contaminant-collecting clay treatment, polish, and initial hand-wax. Detailer technicians add a second coat of Meguiar’s Clear Coat Sealant to enrich the paint’s high-gloss and protect it from the dulling effects of winter weather and insincere compliments. Rain-X keeps auto glass clear from streaks, and a deep hand-clean roots out grease in the engine compartment. Techs also bust interior drabness, sudsing away stains on the carpet and seats with shampoo, conditioning vinyl and leathers, and protecting fabric with stain guard. Cars complete their cosmetic renovation with an ozone odor treatment, which refreshes interior atmospheres and reminds drivers to stop cooking asparagus on the engine block.
