Race format and scoring

No qualifying, all entries are accepted.
Cars will be randomly placed into 4-car groups.
Cars will run a lap in each of the 4 starting positions.
1st = 4pts
2nd = 3pts
3rd = 2pts
4th = 1pt
Cars must cross the finish line to score points.
Top 2 cars from each group advance.


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 be run.

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.

I just found my first Party Wagon last week at the grocery store. I don't see very many on the pegs at all. If I find another one I might enter. Great idea!

Man I only have two of the big bus and the rogue hog. Never thought I'd need that casting.

I'm not sure if this race is in my future or not, but I can truly say that its very existence makes me happy.

If I can acquire 1 I'll be there.

Mine's almost ready to go.  Gotta hit it with clear coat, then she'll be on her way.
