Racing will be on the NEW DonLex Kansas City DRAG STRIP. The pic below is new and by the time the race happens, it will look slightly different but the track is 18 feet long with a 3.9 almost 4 foot drop. I now have a new Slanman Customs timer to track times!
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. Race host has final decision in all races.
Bracket seeding will be random.
Cars are not to exceed 80.99 grams. To be safe, I would try to go for 79.99 or 80.00. If the car exceeds 80.99 or goes into 81.00 by all means necessary, it will be disqualified.
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.
Premium Hotwheels, Champion Trophy and a surprise gift.
