Volunteer Talk – Greg Petrolati

Join us as Greg Petrolati presents a brief history of slot car racing from its early beginnings to the present. Slot cars have existed ever since standard race cars could inspire them to be built. Greg’s talk will cover the beginning of the hobby from the turn of the last century through its heyday in the 50s, 60s, and 70s, to where we are today. 

Greg been a motor-head all his life. Previously to volunteering at World of Speed, he was the Midwest Editor for Victory Lane Magazine and a contributor for Vintage Motorsports Magazine. He has scratch-built his own slot cars and has produced several slot car bodies in cast resin.
