When: Sunday, April 15, 2018

Gulf City Dragway welcomes the RLD 2018 Mini Motor Nationals, Sunday April 15th. This will be a track test and tune-up inaugural race for Gulf City Dragway. This race will feature Hot Wheels and like branded Mini cars. Typically we overlook these castings because they are smaller, shorter wheelbase and generally not thought to be top speed producers. I am hoping that we can make some speed out of these lightweight leftovers.

He already posted a reveal thread.

I'm guessing Audacious would fit the bill for Mini Motor Nationals?

should be fine

Put my down for entry! Assuming I get around to mailing my darn cars out ... apparently I need to aim for doing that, like, weeks or months in advance of races.

I got a kick out of what was written under the "Winners and Results" section of the event....

look forward to having you

So basically if it meets size and weight's a legal casting?

...and not something like the Minecraft cube it's all good. 

Oh...and the entire Legion of Speed is in on this one
Yeah, looking for small cars mini sub-compacts something different. No not doing Minecraft cubes
