This is my first Die Cast Mail in drag racing event. This tournament is geared towards new racers. I have come to enjoy this hobby, and I want to share it with anyone who is a part of it. I am limiting this to a car rookie/newbie field (preferred). The race will be a single-elimination race, with the best overall ET being the winner. If two cars are close in speed, the determining factor will be to the 1/1000 of a second. All videos and results will be listed on my YouTube channel, Freedom Diecast Drag Racing. Please include return shipping with your cars. If cars fail to meet the rules, they will be disqualified. If shipping is not included, your car will go with the winner. No prizes are offered for this event. "Bragging rights."

Rules & restrictions

  • Stock entries only
  • 39 to 59g maximum weight
  • 3.25in. long x 2in. tall x 1.25in. wide (any car that will fit my stock track)
  • Limit 2 entries per household
  • Retail axles and wheels only. No other axles or wheels allowed
  • Dry lube preferred (Oil if it has dried before race day)
  • Cars can be painted or decorated, but nothing distasteful.

Dates & deadlines

All entries must be received by the host before Saturday, 5/25/2024. Racing is scheduled for Saturday, 6/1/2024. Results will be posted on or after that date as is convenient for the host.

Track

Racing will be on the Freedom Dragway. View track profile and specs

Race format and scoring

This will be a single-elimination tournament. A car will move on in the bracket only when it wins two races in a row. Cars will alternate lanes between each race.

The car that wins the final race will be declared the winner. The race host has the final decision in all races. (Best ET will determine the winner)

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.

If a car fails to meet any of the restrictions listed above, the car will not qualify for victory. Offending cars will still race. Finish position and any prize will go to the runner-up in the case of the penalty car winning.

Cars that fail to run or fit on the track, or that happen to break during racing, will forfeit their matches. Cars that arrive broken will attempt to be minimally repaired before the racing begins. Cars that break during racing will not be repaired or replaced.
