The NASCAR Deluxe Speedway Track Set features a head-to-head battle between the Jeff Gordon Number 24 car and the Dale Earnhardt Jr. Number 88 car. With a pit-stop recharger that refuels the cars and over 16 feet of flexible track, this speedway set is sure to provide lots of fun for kids ages five and up.
Before the race cars can get rolling, you'll need to assemble the track. The instructions recommend shaping each piece by rolling it and pushing the walls so they stand straight up, and it's worth taking the time to do this because it helps keep cars on track as you start racing.
Snapping the pieces together to make the 180 degree curves is pretty simple. The tricky part of setup is getting the flexible straightaways to connect evenly, but you'll want to be patient and do it well, since having a smooth surface to compete on makes races a lot more fun.
The pit stop recharger is a fun, unique way to keep cars charged. You can put either two or four D cell batteries in it. Using four batteries lets each race car run longer on a single charge. To get your car ready, simply insert the recharger's nozzle into the intake pipe on your car and press down on the top of the charger.
Start Your Engines!
Once the track is set and the cars are charged, all it takes is the flick of switch to start the action. Each car has a convenient on-off switch on the bottom, just behind the rear wheels. Just like real NASCAR racers, once these cars are moving, they don't want to stop. This means that if a bump sends them off the track they're likely to end up flying across your floor or spinning their wheels in the carpet. Since assembling the track smoothly was a bit tricky, we often had to chase down a few renegade cars. However, we also discovered that these durable little cars are incredibly fun to play with on their own without the track.
The Real NASCAR Speedway Experience
The detail on these race cars is sure to impress serious NASCAR enthusiasts, down to the Goodyear logos on the tires. Young racers will pit the popular drivers Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jeff Gordon against each other again and again in an ultimate championship series. Even the hum the cars make when running mimics a real race. But don't worry -- they're not too loud.
With quick little motors and durable bodies, these cars zoom around the track and easily survive crashes. The big track offers super sized fun, even though keeping the connections smooth occasionally gets tricky, and it's easy to keep the racers charged. Overall, these toy cars do a good job of bringing home the action packed competition that makes NASCAR the top spectator sport in the U. S.

First of tall, to charge your car properly, you need a stopwatch or a clock to look at.
-put your D size batteries in the orange pit box
-also, there is an On/Off switch on the bottom of this thing. It has to be on before you connect the car and push the top to charge.
-To charge a car, make sure the switch on the car is OFF. Plug it to the orange pit box. Press the top and hold for 90 seconds. Unplug. Do the next car. When you are ready to race, turn them both on at once. Place on track and let go. They will race and there are no controls here. But the faster car will eventually try to pass the slower car. It does remind me of a little of Super Speedway racing.
Understand me, to get to this level of what I will say 'fun' has taken me on a trip to Lowes and back in order to get a useable track.
This track has bad engineering. Very bad. The section of straight track that has to connect to the curved bank has a flaw in design. In order to complete the whole track, there are four of these said connections that have to be successfully connected. Well, I can tell you that they don't stay connected for more than 5 minutes at a time and one of them, or more, will be come disconnected. So, I came up with the following fix that should only be attempted by and ADULT:
I used a 1/8" drill bit and on each of the connecting pieces, which there are four, I drilled to 1/8" holes through both sides of the connector. I used 4-40 x 1/2 Flat Slotted with Nut for each whole drilled, for a total of 8. The 4-40 x 1/2 will go through the 1/8 hole loosely enough, but you tighten them down with the nut on the other end. I didn't want to use 1/8 screws, because I am trying to avoid anything being to tight and cracking the plastic. So, with these screws in place, the track has stayed together all day with no adjustments.
