Always been a huge fan of hotwheels highway 35 so I decided what better way to show my love than host a race

    6. No returns on cars. Winners get Cash prize instead
    7. $5 entry fee. Winning Team splits money as it is in movie!!!

How to enter

Contact the tournament host to get the shipping address for entry.


Include a Race Entry ID slip with your entry


Race format and scoring

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

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.


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.


All money from entry fees will be split amongst the winning team as in the movie.

Well this will be a bit challenging considering more than half of the castings here are either discontinued or not readily available on store pegs at the moment.I may participate in this event but I can't gurantee 

  • I think there should be a fair amount that they are still making. — Kingshark
  • Kingjester check ebay if that will be problematic i can see if i can find one for you if you don't mind — CHOWHOUND_RACING_N_DIECAST
  • There are a couple available on the shelves but if anything I can check out savers since here in Rhode Island that’s the place to find cars that aren’t currently on the shelves — Kingjester

Highway 35 had several more castings than those featured in that image, but of those several are on shelves right now. The braille Twin Mill and batman 5 packed Nomad are peg warmers in my town

  • That’s what I mean there are a fair amount of castings that are still made — Kingshark

I just researched the cars involved in the movie and series.. then looked up the castings related to the genre.  There are so many castings attached to the movie n series i had to write a few of them down. Saw a few i likes so I'm on the search 

Some of these imma end up collecting but others imma race

Some of these castings for a dollar, just have to pay Shipping 

  • Man, you gotta work on a junk box. A cardboard box full of junkers you find in big lots at the flea market or thrift store. That way when an event like this happens, you have a beater you can fix up for it. — Uncle_Elvis

I'm definitely in! Street Breed 4 Life!
