The tack pieces slide easily into the other track pieces with a plastic connector. The directions were easy to follow, and the kit came with everything included.
The only tricky part to the Victory Lane race way was the loop-de-loop. You have to twist the track just a bit to get the loop, but it wasn't difficult.
Then, the fun begins. My boys put their cars at the starting point~ right next to the checkered flag. With a push of the red button, a plastic setting comes out to keep the cars in place. To charge the cars, all you need to do is pull the car backward on the track until the sound gets a little louder. NO BATTERIES! I love that! Our household goes through so many batteries, and I was delighted to find out that this set didn't need any!
Get ready, start your engines, GO! Push the Green button and sit back to see which car will take first place! My boys loved watching the cars go through the loops next to one another. It is fun!
I think that the Victory Lane Race track is a great gift to give kids this Christmas! The race track is flexible, sturdy, and provides hours of fun and entertainment. My boys, and even my daughter, loves to play with this race track. This play set features two NASCAR heroes, Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson, in their trademark DuPont and Lowe’s branded cars. Even if you aren't into NASCAR, racing is so much fun! Full track size is 53” x 25” x 12.5” $64.99 • Ages 4+
