Ah, the Pit Stop. My buddy Mike Cook and I stopped by often to dream about owning a slot car and racing there. Problem was we had no money for such an expensive toy/hobby. Then after a couple of years I had my sights on a pre-made racing slot car that was rumored to hold it's own on the track. Most of the fastest cars were custom made by their owners. I came very close to actually buying it but it would of taken every last cent that I had and in the end it never happened. The Pit Stop was a huge operation and I can still remember it like it was yesterday.

My older brother Rick Parker (Hoover High '67) was determined I always had the fastest car. I did, but I was not always the best operator of the fastest car. Fun memories!

The Pit Stop, great memories. We used to go to a Mexican restaurant, and while waiting for are food I would go watch the races. Fresno needs a place like this. These guys were serious

I remember there was a slot car track behind Triple J's and I would go to every weekend.
