There's ANOTHER new Slot Track in So Cal...

Mike Low's  - "D Square"
Yes slot heads!  There is yet another brand new HO Slot car track in So Cal.  It's a 4x13 continuous-rail 3 laner with a couple of interesting "wrinkles" (look closely).  It's called the "D Square", and this sweet little track is owned by SCHOR racer Mike Low.  Just about anyone who's been on the So Cal HO racing scene for a while knows Mike.  Back in the mid-nineties he was the owner of the fast and famous APEX Raceway in Torrance, CA  that hosted the SCHOR SPRING-NATS and many other cool races.  Mike also created and sponsored "The Apex Cup", which was an annual race that brought together So Cal's fastest HO racers for a big shoot-out.  Mike faded from the HO slot racing scene for several years, but he has now returned with renewed energy, and he recently commissioned SCHOR racer and HO track builder Scott Dunlap to produce this very cool track.  If it appears to be a bit similar to the IKEA track in San Diego that's because IKEAs owner Ty Brittain works closely with Dunlap to produce some amazing CAD based HO track designs, and Mike's new layout is the latest result of their successful collaboration.
