About “Slot Car Racing in Popular Culture”
Eddie Shorer, a 23-year veteran of Slot Car Racing, offers an insider’s view of this hobby/sport in a very personal narrative from 1963 to the present. Between 2007 and 2021 “Fast Eddie” presented these papers at Popular Culture Association National Conferences in San Francisco, Seattle, San Diego, Washington, DC, and Los Angeles. Topics cover his involvement in the Golden Age of the hobby, its rise and fall, rebirth and growth, and profiles of racers, collectors and builders in both club and commercial racing. Included are photos from his accompanying presentations and links to the full-resolution PowerPoint presentations online.
