Slot Car Magazine

Thanks to Ric Woods of Slot Car Magazine after the 2017 Slot car exhibit I was offered to write an Article for the March 2018 SCM.  I used this as an introduction for all to Powertrack if they had heard of it or whether they didnt remember it. After all, if you were around in the late 70s and early 80s I am sure someone you knew had one of these Matchbox sets!
