​​​​​This site is dedicated to my Dad, who enjoyed slot car racing, building slot car tracks and model cars.
Started with a "Midget"  

1966 - Dad & I started purchasing the 1/24 scale Monogram Midget slot cars and "Hot Shot" midget kits. 
In the late 60's, We started with Revell plastic track, and moved on to 
building tracks out of plywood, particle board, luan wood and MDF.  Every track got better and bigger.
We had everything from a 4 lane road course, to 4, 5, & 6 lanes ovals.  My current track is a flat, 6 ft x 10 ft,

5 lane with 3 1/2" lane spacing  on 1/2 in. MDF.

The table size is 7'10 in. wide x 14 ft long.   The 10 in. section of the table was set aside for scenery, pit area, bleachers and concession stand. 
A short time after the release of the midgets, a friend of my Dad's started racing the midgets at his home 
on a 4 lane Revell track.   He had Friday night races with the neighborhood kids.  His midgets were modeled after real midgets & drivers from "USAC" or "Badger".  

1966 to 1984, his group ran under the name "Short Circuit Racing Assn. (SCRA).  (Photos of his track and cars on the"Vintage"page)   


November of 1976:  The "Mighty Midget Racing Association", was formed, and our track was named
"Tosa Raceway Park".  


The midgets we run are old style "Offy's" and some newer style.  Some midgets are modeled after real cars and others are our own design.  Of the 85 midgets I have, a percentage of them have the original motors, and the old "Aj's" silicones tires. 
(Information on the
"Midget Info" page).
 
Tosa Raceway Park, home for midget racing.  We run other groups of cars, including stock cars, sportsmans, modifieds, sprint cars, jalopy's, 1/25 Nascar Trucks, and 1/24 scale Ford Fusions.
My thanks to everyone past and present who help to keep Tosa Raceway Park running.
Thanks for looking.  Hope you enjoy it.
