Second race, same rules, typically different line up of cars, usually 48 cars.

Scoring and Winning

This will be a 2 night race.  The winner of each race will be impounded.  At the end of this we will have 8 winners.  Those cars will square off to decide the over all tournament winner.


If the car fails tech we will work with that racer via PM to either fix the car(s) so it does pass tech or that vehicle will sit out the competition. 

Tracks & Dates

The races will be held Wednesday April 19 and Wednesday April 26. 

Winners and Results

I will take a crash course in making videos.  We will share a video of each race.

This might be up my alley! Can you please post some details, and especially pictures and/or videos, of the track? Especially of your catchbox.

12 fast cars??? Might need to dig through my former racers...

Cool! I'll have to see what I can come up with! 

I will take some video tonight.  I don't really have a catch box I am not fond of that design.  I have more of a shut down area using carpet so things are more gradual.  By the time the race does happen my track may be longer.  It was going to get changed over the weekend but the edge glued wood I used for the shelves is discontinued.

Sounds fun, 12 cars....I'll try to get it done. My main focus is getting my two tracks ready ( Tobacco Road Dragway and Bootleg Run), but I probably won't be able to help myself.....glad I'm semi-retired.



And this is a video:


  • got it, 4 track pieces per lane, short and sweet... what vinyl you got playing? — Traction-Event
  • It could be on a 12 foot shelf next weekend. The popular its on I cant buy a duplicate. Last night was Stooges Raw Power — undercoverbuick
  • IGGY! — Traction-Event

Ah, little sprint track action!!! See what I can do, doing some mods right now, but  Pony Wars 2 and building my (2) tracks are on the front burner right now. Looks fun!!

Some photos and video from our race this week.  We had 8 individual races tonight.  The video is the race between the 8 winning cars.  We mixed in some theme races but we usually call those on the fly.

 Elliot, My name is Nick of Nickpetty racing I live in Kalamazoo and I have  a nice stable of fast cars that's up for the challenge. email me @ nicxyz007@yahoo.com

My wagons returned this week so I got a chance to race those against the local guys.  My friend Marc that races with us every week built an even faster wagon than what I have.  It would have fit the rules for the wagon war 72_Chevy_C10 hosted. 

We ran 8 races again this week.  some pics of the 8 winners.  and the overall winner, which was not my station wagon. 




I want to thank 72_Chevy_C10 for the new toys.  That red Mustang is really cool. 

Just curious if anyone is mailing cars?
