New to the diecast racing hobby, or maybe just looking for an easy way to get involved? This tournament is a good place to start. No modding required...or allowed.
This is a no-mod race for stock Hot Wheels cars only. Pick up to 2 cars and send them in for your chance to win. This will be a standard bracket with double-elimination...random seeding and byes when needed, dependent on the number of entrants.
And if you're not sure what type of car to look for, check out the Redline Derby Fantasy League rankings to see which stock cars have a history of being fast. Then look for them (or something similar) on the pegs in your local stores.
This tournament will get a highlights video and possible preview episode as well, stay tuned.
Congratulations to FOTF and his Castrol Funny Car for the win. He'll get the Prize Pot of cars and Redline Derby Victory Sticker.
You can watch the live stream replay of the tournament here.

Scoring and Winning
This will be a single-host, double-elimination tournament. This will be a heads-up style race with no lane switching. Seeding will be random. The car that beats everyone else will win.
Entries will be checked for modifications. Any offending cars will not race. Each car will be given one do-over if it comes off the track during a race. If the car comes off a second time, it will forfeit that match.
