Next up: SCHOR 2011 Race #4 on the RIVERSIDE...

Well it's looking like that time of year again!  It's that fun time when HO Slot racers far and wide come together and pay homage to the great "RIVERSIDE BUCKTRAX".

The Riverside was one of the very first BUCKTRAX ever made.  After spending time in Seattle, DelMar, and San Diego, it was moved to it's latest and most permanent home in Rancho Cucamonga, CA which puts it only 25 miles from the site of it's namesake.  The long-gone but never forgotten, RIR - "Riverside International Raceway"

There's something about the layout of the Riverside that most racers love. It's smooth, ultra fast, and has a rhythm that is addicting to most slot racers. It also is known to produce some amazing races that almost rival it's namesake. You may have noticed that the layout has been duplicated in HO tracks many times over. Apparently it's the same way with the real Riverside track, as they almost built a replica of the original RIR race course in Merced, CA a couple of years back.

And all of this is to say...

The latest 24th scale Slot Car from John Cukras...

Cukra's -  McLaren Can Am  for D3
John Cukras and I were exchanging emails a few days ago, and right after we completed our discussions about HO slot cars he sent me these cool photos of his latest 24th scale creation that he built last Thursday.
