Thanks for the info, CCR! I'll definitely have to try to get in on this one, then.
LeagueofSpeed

League of Speed is in

To answer Voxxer and FOTF's question about the track, it will most likely be the one in the video that FOTF posted above or the track in the following video. At any rate, a 6-8 foot downhill section followed by an 16-18 ft. flat section.

Be sure to get your teams sent off this week. 

I sent my cars off but they might not arrive until tomorrow. I hope they make it in time!
