Matchbox 61st Anniversary Mail-In Series

Jump to last page

This is a mail-in series for Matchbox vehicles only (You may use any other brand chassis if you wish though) This will be a single elimination series at all venues. If we should end up with an odd amount of cars entered, the bye run will be given randomly to the first car number drawn out of the hat. All pairings will also be randomly drawn from the hat, in the order they are pulled out. So in other words, if you enter two cars, there is a chance they might end up running each other first round.

DEADLINE: August 31st!

MAIL CARS TO:

Michael Smith 

141 Foster RD, 

Auburn, ME 04210

  • September 14th - Dadvball, Massachusetts

I will host and possibly film the finals on October 5th here at the K & O Racing shop on my track. I will post track specs and pictures later..... If a host would like to run two races on the same weekend as a double header instead, we can adjust the schedule for that.

Smitty, I'll let you run whatever date you would like to run. Are you planning on entering one or two cars? Also, you can enter Fast Fred if you would like, if it is an un-even bracket I will randomly draw-of-the-hat pick whomever gets the single, that way Fred can race wether it is an even bracket or not. Does that sound like a good idea?

  • 2 each for fred and I, because i am on the east coast put me in geogaphically — model40fan

Hi KandO!

Cool...I'm sure that I can find some of my old Matchboxes and bring them up to speed!

I'm jump in on this one too...I'll have to dig out some Matchboxes but I have a few that I think could be decent without any modding. Count me in for 2 cars. I'll get those out to Maine in the next couple weeks.

Great event!   Rally case and weber cabin are good for two cars each.  Thanks for putting it together.

I've got two MB cars for this, and I can host a race as well. Whichever date makes more sense.

  • Does the 28th work for you? — KandORacing
  • I'll make it work. — delta6
  • Are you sure? If it is inconvenient for you I can re-schedule the race date. — KandORacing
  • Yeah, its no problem. — delta6
  • OK Then. Thanks for hosting. — KandORacing
