As Chase said, we got the cables for the computer and monitors ran last night. The last few days, I've been working on getting the track wiring. After a lot of lying on my back and crawling around, I got all of the track wired. I still need to hook up the power, and get it adjusted; I'll be doing that tomorrow. I will also be hooking up the lap counter and connecting the SRT wires to the "fuse board". The turns got scuffed also and will get cleaned and sprat glued Wednesday or Thursday. If everything goes right; the track will be ready to run on Thursday, and planning on have a Texas Nascar and maybe a Group F race Friday night. So now for some even better news. I couldn't wait to see car go around the track; so I hooked up a power supply to the relay and to the track, hooked up a controller and made a few laps. The track was very slick even after I cleaned off the dust; but the car went full speed through the bank! Still need to touch up some sideboards with paint, and do some cleaning; but it'll be up and running very soon. An update on the snake, it's a Texas blind snake/worm snake; and will be released back to the wild tomorrow.

Wow....I've been laying low and did not realize you even bought the old ROMS John. I have to say that track looked rough when you first put it in there, but that thing looks awesome now! You and Chase did a great job and congratulations.

I didn't buy ROMS, just a place to set the track up.

Got the power to the track done today. Tomorrow, Chase and I'll get the computer up and running. Then do some cleaning. Then we'll run some cars around. I'll post more tomorrow.

He could help you with all that Wisdom he's gained over that last 100 years, you should reconsider.

If he could just remember anyway.
