I'm so sorry about the mix-up on this, Guys! It's my bad for not being on top of this! Think of it a 'rain-out'...and it's off to Tennessee next weekend...and a first time host! I'm excited to see the cars on a new track!

Maybe I'll run a double-header to make up for the missed race on the Final weekend!

Hey Guys,got the cars today and hope to get the race in this weekend..I'll post pictures and times when we do..Now we have no timing so I guess one would start out with two cars and go from there??Is this all one race or are there two different ones here?



Looks like fun!!

Check this thread, Rusty. The Rookie cars will have a 16-car field (there are sheets in the folder), and the top three cars will go into the Middleweight race to complete their 16-car field.

Set the brackets via random draw.

Thanks Rusty!

Well guys with the Wife's help we got the race run!!

Needless to say I'm a lucky guy..

First off I want to say all are some very fast cars,with cool paint jobs to match.

No 2nd rate cars here.They are all winners in my book..

Now here we go.

The track is 22 feet with about 3 foot drop.Yes we did straighten out the track after the picture was taken.Started the rookie race with random draw.

Some of these rides were very close..If they were that close we would race them best 2 out of 3.

I've got the brackets in the pictures.Hopefully you can read them.If not let me know and we will try to do something else.We also wrote the numbers on each bag so that the next guy can find the cars easier.

The three that went on to the Middleweight challenge were CC Rider #75,Happy Camper #59, and Cortez #33 ..

Ok enough delay in posting the winner...

CC RIDER #57

Fast car,congrats my friend!!





We then ran the Middleweight Challenge.

As you can see the rookies did bow out early,but with some close races.

Some very close races.I did run a few of these best 2 out of 3,all the way to the end.They were that close..

The race came down to Dadvall # 96 and TE #90..

Closest race yet .Ran again,best out 2 out of 3..They looked even all the way down the track..


But there is always a winner and this time it was DadVBall that pulled out the win!!

Congrats!!!







We are boxing up the cars in a new priority box,each wrapped well with an addition prize for the winner.A Smitty built end of track..

had fun,hope you guys did too.

Rusty
