This is a quick walk around of my buddy Bills amazing track. Called Inslot’s Checkered Flag Raceway. It was recently extended and we ran our first race here last weekend. This video shows the layout and some neat stuff in the main room. Next time i will try and get video of his main collection which has more than a thousand cars!
