Nice write-up in The Evening Sun about Slots of Fun Speedway in Hanover, PA.

Don’t fall off.

Newcomers to slot car racing would do well to remember that piece of advice offered by Colton Harmon, owner of Slots of Fun Speedway, which is poised to bring the nostalgic hobby back to Hanover.

“There might be people that are a lot faster than you, and if they fall off, you can easily pass them,” Harmon said. “if you are fast and you fall off a lot, you’re not going to win. If you are just kind of slow and steady, you can still do pretty good.”
