Looking for Old Derby Magic Single Lane Track

Does anyone have any of the old single test lane Derby Magic yellow plastic track for sale? I inherited a test track that works great but is quite short.
I'm looking to add length but am told the new track will not work with the old.

Thanks!

You might want to put this in Derbytalk's Trading Post. That is probably frequently visited.
I'm just curious. How long is the track and do you have a timer for it? If the track is around 30 feet long you'll be in good shape. If a car is fast at the 30 foot length it probably will be fast at the 36 foot length. Not always, but more often then not. I would think any section of a Derby Magic track would work assuming they stayed with a 1 5/8" guide strip. Plastic is easy to cut with a saw. If all you need is a straight length of track it's easy to make one out of a piece of plywood and some Pine lattice strip.
I wish you well.

Hi! The track is about 25' long, and I have a timer. The timer works with GPRM but not the native Derby Magic program. Thanks!
