Welcome to the 2016 Pro Series, Truck-O-Rama. This is the third of 6 tournaments that make up the 2016 Redline Derby Pro Series. Entry is open to everyone. You do not have to have entrered a previous Pro Series tournament to qualify. The points earned in this tournament go towards each racer's Pro Series total. At the end of the year, the racer with the most total points in will be crowned champion.
This will be a standard, double-elimination bracket. The car that wins the final, wins this tournament. Points earned only go towards the Pro Series total, they do not determine the winner of this tournament.
The next Pro Series tournament will be held in August.
Truck-O-Rama features only trucks, vans and wagons. The first Truck-O-Rama was held back in 2012 and saw veteran EconoCarl take the victory over field of 10 entrants. Truck-O-Rama II was just held last June so it has become a summer tradition of sorts. Lets see how things shake out this year with what should be a field stocked with speed. More metal, more weight, more speed.
Congratulations to Voxxer Racing for a well earned win. He fell out of the upper bracket late but got revenge after battling back out of the lower bracket.
