News Flash: The 2012 Boneshaker was an outstanding weekend of T-jet racing.
The Boneshaker is an annual T-jet HO slot car race event hosted by Mark Frazin and his fabulous Boneshaker Speedway, and co-hosted and sanctioned by the Western Pennsylvania Slot Car Club. The Boneshaker is a challenging six lane Fray style track built in California by Scott Dunlap.
The event features Super Stock T-jets following the ECHORR rules package. A round robin qualifying race seeds individual finals (or “mains”) with move-ups. The round robin segment features 2 minute heat races scored by laps and sections. The finals feature 3 minute heat races scored by laps and sections. The A-Main final determines the overall winner and podium finishers. There is an evening support race which traditionally features BSRT G-Jets in an IROC championship points format.
