Sure do! That's what got me back into modeling, using the bodies for drag racing. My local track has all scales, H.O., 1/32 magnetic, 1/24. Has 5 different tracks to choose from with many different classes to participate in. Many stamped steel chassis, FCR brass chassis, and Retro classes where you build the cars from brass and piano wire, all classes are a lot of fun.
It's great building the models, then I get to see it in action, not just sitting on a shelf.

I'm debating getting into HO. No one near me seems to race which is a limiting factor. The neaest other track to mine (if I actually built it) would currently be about an hour or and hour and a half away. With my limited time (son active in Boy Scouts, I'm an assistaint Scoutmaster and a daughter in competitive gymnastics) and I'd like to actually build models) that too much communting for a competition. I'm aware of active clubs three or so hours away but just can't commit the time and the money to it.

Maybe when I retire or the kids are in college.
