There will be two(2) classes...Modified and Stock, the stock class will bring into play some heavyweights like Noodlehead, Jet Threat and Sidekick.

@ HWL88...the only car that qualifies for this race that you sent into Bootleg Run is the Twinduction.

No i didnt mean sending them in but basically any fantasy model

You said^^^the cars you sent in for Bootleg Run^^^...and the only car out of yours and Speedsta's that qualify for this race is the Twinduction out of those four(4). So, moving forward just ask me about a car and I'll let you know if it qualifies, but there are a lot of Hot Wheels Originals out there....Mustangs, Camaros, Corvettes, Nova's, Superbirds etc., do not qualify for this race, that would also include a Boss Hoss, Nitty Gritty Kitty...those are basically Mustangs and Cougars....any questions ask here or PM me.

Here is a good example for the range allowed for this race...Speed Force has already picked her team out to be Modified...and I wouldn't race that team in a million years, but hopefully it will be what makes this race fun and unique.


So any fantasy model?

  • Just let me know what you've got inb mind, but it will most likely be OK — LeagueofSpeed

If you have a good tunout, you could have a separate division for the '68-'70, nylon bushing cars
