Bootleg Run was inspired by the early days of running Moonshine in the North Carolina foothills during prohibition and beyond. The roots of NASCAR come from these "Bootleggers" and their supped up cars made for out running G-Men and the local police. This is a 2 lane downhill road course and has a switchback called "The Reapers Switchback"...the first turn is known as "The Widow Maker" and the second as "The Soul Taker"...get through this gauntlet and you just might make your run to the bottom.

The inaugural race on Bootleg Run will feature Hot to the make the Run. This race will be a mix of Stock and Modded cars....which should be a fair mix since this is just not a cut and dry downhill gravity race.

here are the rods that I'm sending in for the boot leg inaugural race. I have a question, is the surf crate legal for this race? If so it will be my modder and the skull candy will be the stocker. This is the mock up, paint, axle jib chrome still to be done. Thanks

Pony Up Racing has informed me that their two cars will be the same casting but different color schemes like their Mustangs in Legends of Tobacco Road.

Just wanted to let you know I'm totally in on this one. I love Hot Rods! Couple of questions. If we're sending in 2 cars does one have to be Stock or can they both be modded. Also, you'd mentioned "actual real castings". Can we build our own Hot Rods? Sometimes when I'm doing a wheel swap I also like to do engine swaps...or pipes... or chop the top...or whatever? Are we ok to do some body modifications?
