The big track set for 1968 is the Hot Curves Race Action Set. Each car has to deal with 16 feet of orange track, a 90 degree half curve and a 180 degree full curve. I find the most interesting feature of this set involves splitting up the cars through the mid portion of the track. This adds an element of suspense as each car speeds along on its own. “Who is ahead?” Then, just before the finish gate, both cars are brought back together for a head to head finale.
The set includes 32 feet of orange track, 12 joiners, one universal clamp, one start gate, one finish gate, 6 trestles, two 90 degree half curves, and two 180 degree full curves.
The set up is a little more involved, so it helps to pay attention to the instructions.

There you have it. Drag racing with a twist (so to speak).
