The Mullet River Sprint Track's kick off to season 2. To celebrate it's not just one race, but two! Mail in one car and it runs both races.

The first race of season 2 will be known as “That 70's Race". This mail-in tournament will be exclusive to any car that has a year between 1970 and 1979 in the title of the car. Example: ’70 Firebird. Details are in the rules. This race will have a 24-car field.
The second race is The Mullet River Royal Rumble! We’ll be using the same 24-car field as "That 70's Race". Starts with two cars selected at random to run the first lap. Another randomly selected car will be added to the race each lap until all 24 cars have entered the race. After the first lap, every new car entered will start in last place. Rules are simple, if you finish with a wheel touching the any part of the track, you’re still in whether you finished the lap or not. If you finish a lap off the track or upside down before the finish line you’re out! If you cross the finish line upside down, you are still in. Starting grid for each lap is the finishing order from previous lap. Finish 1st, start the next lap in front. Once all 24 cars have entered, the race will enter survivor mode. If everyone finishes on their wheels, whom ever is in last place is out. Last car standing wins.

Race format and scoring

That 70's Race will be running in a 24-car bracket with 6 cars participating in each race. 6 laps per group. The top 3 cars from each group will advance to the next round. Bracket seeding will be random. Race host has final decision in all races. Cars will score points based on how they finish each lap:
1st Place - 6 points?
2nd Place - 5 points?
3rd place - 4 points?
4th Place - 3 points ?
5th place - 2 points?
6th Place - 1 points
DNF = 0 points

The Mullet River Royal Rumble format is as stated in the intro. Reach out if you have any questions.


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 rules. I’ll contact the owner and discuss if there are any options to either correct for racing or send it back if needed.

Cars that fail to run or fit on the orange hotwheels 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.
