At the back of the raceway is the "Kingleman" track. This is a short (100'), tight, flat (except for the bank turn) "drivers" track.

The donut on the Kingleman track with the transition to the lead on turn into the bank. The donut and the transition to the lead on turn is a challenge to drive fast and not deslot.

A view from the Kingleman bank turn. Deadman turn on the right, 180 turn after the deadman, leading to the donut and lead on turn into the straightaway (drivers panel on the left). The inside black lane is difficult to drive (especially the deadman and donut).

The BPR 1/24 scale drag strip has regular drag races on Saturdays.

The XMAS tree light is just like the real ones. The finish line area in the background has an overhead display which indicates the winning lane, and ET. Pit area on the left side against the wall. Pit benches also on the right side.
