Awareness Speedway Slot Car Club

The track is located in Mechanicsburg, Pa

We call it the "Awareness Speedway" because we are "raising awareness" of working with these "very special" Special Needs people

We are a private club track that will be used by family, friends, & members and will be open to the public for races to help support the club’s mission. The club’s mission offers a place where parents/families can bring their mentally challenged, medically challenged, youths and adults to learn a new sport activity. We will have them come to the track with their family to play in a private setting by appointment only. We are not wheelchair accessible.

The goal is to be able to eventually have them be able to race with each other. Then onto a combination field when they are ready to race with new people.

We are working with the NHS Carlisle Autism School, the Autism Society - Greater Harrisburg Area Chapter, UCP Adult Group Homes and the Ronald McDonald House.

We are going to have 5 or 6 races for dirt style slot cars in 2012 - 2013 for our racing members to support the club’s missions.

If interested in participating or becoming a member or a Track Racing sponsor please visit our web site or Facebook page for more great info and contact information. :) :)

There was a portable track down at VA Motor Speedway for the Commonwealth 100 that is "the only Lucas Oil Series Sanctioned Slot car track". Apparently, they did some sort of charity event and got the Lucas Oil Series to "sanction" it. I'll see if I can find the fellow's contact info, because the one thing that you could probably use is that they appeared to have a template for printing dirt Late Model bodies on sheets of card stock, which they then cut out, fold up, and fasten appropriately to use for their slot car bodies. It's cheap, and given how the real ones are made from sheet metal, it really does convey the look of the real thing quite nicely, and by being able to print them on a color printer, you can do all sort of paintjobs or replicas of real cars just by manipulating the template in a suitable software program.

If I don't find the info, I would guess that a web search for Lucas Oil sanctioned slot car track would probably find them. They seemed to be really nice folks, and I'd bet that they'd be willing to share ideas and lessons learned with you.

Help US

Most people know someone in their neighborhood, work, school or church who has a child who has special needs. Due to increasing interest and popular demand, Awareness Speedway is seeking to find an attorney or new grad law clerk who specializes in setting up charities or NPOs in Pa. Please let us know who you know who can help us get started to become a charity. Thank you sooooooo much!!! :D :D
