Autodome raceway in Lexington, Ky

Post by GeneralZod »

I recently acquired an old car that the seller says it used to race at this track in the 90's. Is there any of you out there that has any information, photos or articles about that place? It sounded like a pretty neat track from what I heard.

Here it is. Looks like fairly recently, someone put a XT90 on the old Novak to get her running again. Going to put a proper old school deans on it and solder on some new ESC wires. The ESC was quickly powered on and lit up. I'm fairly certain it'll work. Servo is an old S132H and also in working condition. The bolink steel axle is not original and I will be replacing it. I will try to keep this car as period correct as I can. The body was very nicely painted and only has one small crack over one wheel. I'm going to fix it using mesh tape and shoe goo.

Ah, I see Autodome decal on it😀. I bet that car ran on the same track as well. Too bad it lost most of its parts along the way. Were you the original owner?

I don't know about the car but someone did a good job on the Mark Martin body. Last time I was at a Nascar race (a long time ago), he was still using that color scheme.
Always looking for new and interesting ways to waste money.

Yep, I may add some small sponsor decals behind front wheel arches and some above. Maybe one can cover the small crack :lol:
