2016 NASTE Season - The Shoot Out
Tuesday June 21, 2016



The NASTE 2016 racing season was brought to a close with the final race held at Rapid Raceway. There were two preliminary races followed by the final Shoot Out race for the championship. A set of four 1/24 Sports Racer cars were used for the Trophy Dash race and the "B" Main. The cars featured Ferrari 312P bodies supplied by Team Bluegroove of Canada, mounted on H&R chassis running H&R 26,000 RPM motors. The cars proved to be very durable and provided for some very close racing.

The first race was the Trophy Dash for all the NASTE racers who did not compete in the Point Series Championship. Dorothy "The Hammer" Abbott lead the way to the finish line to take the win.

Welcome to NASTE

NASTE provides slot car hobbyist’s with opportunities to further their interest in slot cars through social gathers as well as structured race programs. NASTE also connects with other clubs which provides even more options for racing.

NASTE was established in 1996 by a small group of slot car racing enthusiasts in the Portland, Oregon area that wanted something different. At first we raced on a short, 3 lane routed 1/24 scale track. The racing was intense! Click here to view the original site. Soon we expanded adding more tracks to the racing schedule.

Our goal is to make our racing inexpensive, with the main focus being on having FUN! Besides, we have learned that low tech can be very competitive! So, check out our cars and tracks and drop us a line if you have any questions or comments. And if you're in our local area, feel free to join us. You are more than welcome.
