Sad News About Beau Frazier
Thursday December 22, 2022

It is with great sadness that I am reporting on Beau Frazier's passing at the age of 72 this morning at 6:15 am. He was a great friend to me in both slot cars and the 1-1 car world. Beau would help anyone who asked and did a lot for the sport/hobby of slot car racing. He would build great slot cars for the new guy for practically nothing. He found the Pro Slot Indy cars that we are racing. He Built a chassis for the Can-Am class that was available to all racers. He will be greatly missed.

NASTE was established in 1996 by a small group of slot car racing enthusiasts in the Portland, Oregon area that wanted something different.
