Race format and scoring

This will be a single-elimination tournament. A car will move on in the bracket with the fastest time combined with the bigger beat.... 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. Best 3 out of 5 for the FINAL RACE.

Bracket seeding for stocks will be according to qualifying 

MOD RACE will be random seeding determined by the fancy wheel generator 

Penalties/DNF

Cars are given no grace over the stated weight limit to account for variance in scales.So make sure it's 58 or less.

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.

Prizes

Stock winner will get a Trophy and prize bundle.
Modified winner will get a Trophy and prize bundle.
