The "Fiedler 400" 2013

Slot Racers Come Together to Help One of Their Own

The "Fiedler 400" was held on September 14th 2013 as a slot car race benefiting racer David "Sano Dave" Fiedler's ongoing battle with Cancer.

It was more than just a fund raiser- it was a day of fun and laughter among slot brothers and people who care about the well being of Dave, who is a beloved character in Retro Slot Car Racing.

All of the race fees in addition to donations by participants as well as other interested individuals added over $1,000.00 to the fund for Dave.

If you would like to send a donation in any amount to the "Fiedler 400" fund, please send your donation via PayPal to Thank you in advance.

This event was hosted by Mid-America Raceway and Hobbies in Downers Grove, IL. All races were run on Mid-America's Gerding G-12 King.
