Tiny Lakeside shop an official NASCAR store By Nathan Max Tuesday, January 4, 2011 at 6:01 a.m. LAKESIDE — Sometimes, hobbies make the best small businesses. That seems to be the case in Lakeside, where a tiny store has become one of the region's few authorized dealers for NASCAR-replica Diecast models. Shoppers have come from as far away as Orange County, Temecula and Mexico to the 300-square-foot store at 9937 Maine Ave. to buy collectible cars, apparel and other souvenirs. The sign above the shop says, "NASCAR Racing Collectibles," although its official name is NascarSanDiego.com. It has a second domain name, TotallyMotorSports.com, which also generates a significant number of sales. The business moves, on average, about $10,000 a month in merchandise, manager Bob Chabot said. "It's a low-key type of business," Chabot said. "Our overhead is so low, we don't need to sell much to stay in business." A few years back, a group of owners led by KUSI personality Dave Stall purchased the bankrupt assets of a business "because it fit what our hobbies were," said Chabot, 68, who is not an owner but has substantial involvement with the store. Last year, the group switched locations from Santee to Lakeside, and they now also stage a swap meet on the second Saturday of every month in an adjacent lot next door. "We were thinking about moving to La Mesa or El Cajon, but those aren't NASCAR people," Chabot said. "We chose Lakeside because these are NASCAR people. Plus, the sales tax is less." They have no competition locally. Online, of course, they have a lot of competition. About half of sales are made online and the other half comes from in-store foot traffic. When someone does come through the door, Chabot is quick to hand out a TotallyMotorSports.com business card and ask customers about their favorite driver. El Cajon-native Jimmie Johnson is the store's biggest seller, he said. "It's got a lot of good stuff in there and has a wide range of items," said Kyle Slingerland, 29, a Lakeside resident who stopped by to purchase $20 worth of souvenirs for a friend last week. "It's random to see it on the strip here. You'd figure to see it at the mall, not in downtown Lakeside."
