I have not been home in a long time sir, but last time i was home there was a store in the burnsville center mall that did slot cars and had a neat raceway setup in the store and i want to say they let folks brink their own slotcars and run em on the track layout, worth chicking into or asking around if its still there or not

i find most places in malls now days don't seem to stick around much nowadays

Scale Model Supplies in St. Paul has several tracks set up. They are original 60s commercial tracks and they run them on certain nights. I think they are 1/32 and 1/24. They also have a dragstrip.

I have been in scale model supply several times and I have never seen a slot car track where is it? Is it in that back room that is straight behind all the paints, magazine, and evergreen/plastistrut aisle? Oh is there a secret room where I need to know special handshake and a code word lol.

Yes, there's a walk through door at the end of the paint/styrene/reference isle that goes to their "as is" area. If you take an immediate right after walking through that doorway you'll see a dutch door. If the track is open walk right in I imagine, if not there is a sign with track hours. I've never been there while it's open and I forget the hours but I always peek in, it looks fun!
