This tournament is stop number 4 of the 2022 Diecast Drag Racing Season schedule.  Now, this race was called "The Equalizer" for a reason.  We will be racing Real Riders!  This should definetily throw a wrench into things.  This could be the race where a new builder gets their first win over the big boys.  This should shake up the season points a little as well.  Good luck
