Indianapolis, IN, December 05, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Jeff Smith, President of the 500 Automotive Group, doesn’t just drive and sell some of the finest examples of automotive ingenuity that General Motors has ever created. He knows as much about their celebrated elements as those who design and build these inspiring machines. This puts him in a better position than most of us to understand – and appreciate - the extraordinary craftsmanship that goes into making a Slot Mods USA raceway. That’s why he commissioned Slot Mods USA to create for his showroom a custom hand crafted raceway built in the spirit and vein of the famed Brickyard at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
The 500 Automotive Group’s hand- crafted slot car diorama is an astounding 12’x20’ in size and features 3 lanes of racing excitement. The design allows not only for NASCAR racing but Indy Series and F1 as well. Slot Mods’ innovative track development and custom lane changers allow for the use of the infield layout which adds to the raceway’s realism in not only design but use as well.
Jeff and his team at the 500 Automotive Group place a special focus on ensuring their customers receive the most gratifying and enjoyable purchasing experience possible. The addition of the artisan created and Brickyard inspired raceway will help further develop their truly unique and exciting automotive buying atmosphere for customers and their families. The diorama will be regularly utilized for promotional and customer appreciation functions throughout the year. Customers and their families will have the chance to not only race each other but Indy Series and NASCAR drivers as well. Of course, if you visit the 500 Automotive Group showroom in Clinton Indiana at the right time you may see customers enjoying the opportunity to race Jeff himself while their purchases are being prepped and tended to.
The track will also be utilized in concert with the 500 Museum of Wheels which was started by Jeff’s grandfather, Don Smith. The museum began 40 years ago in an effort to preserve and display iconic examples of America’s rich motorsports history along with some of the finest vintage, classic and muscle cars that Detroit ever rolled off its assembly lines. With over 200 examples of Indy, stock, sprint, midget, passenger cars and hot rods in the museum collection the addition of the raceway will help to ensure that the history and excitement of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway will continue to be preserved and enjoyed.
