Track

Here is a link to a previous stock race we put together as a fund raiser for the Fire Department and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  It will give you an idea of the track set up and what to expect as far as video production.

Race format and scoring

This will be a single-elimination tournament. Cars will matchup head to head, with each car starting once from each of the 2 starting lanes. Winning cars earn 3 points, losing cars earn 1 point. A DNF gets 0 points. In the event of a points tie after 2 races, the cars will compete in a tie-breaker race with the higher seeded car starting from lane 1.

Winning cars advance through the bracket, losing cars are out.

The car that wins the final race will be declared the winner. Race host has final decision in all races.

Bracket seeding will be random.

Penalties/DNF

Cars are given a grace of 1g over the stated weight limit to account for variance in scales.

Cars that arrive broken will attempt to be minimally repaired before the racing begins.

Prizes

TBD...probably a TH casting, definitely tons of glory, maybe an autographed photo of Adam West.
