When are the funny car races going to be run, and how soon after the race will our cars be returned?
This is all just so confusing. Mr Deavers stated his cars were being shipped and he'd be provided a tracking number. I asked for mine at the same time and got a gotcha covered. Now its been 18+ days of silence. No cars, no tracking, Nothing!!!

Muscle Mania 2020 (Six cars)
2021 RLD Nationals - The Z Cars (Two cars)
I am going to pull out of these two races posted above.
I am hoping to get my RLDRL June Race (Two cars) and also my Charger Summer (Two cars) back.
Thank you for your time, I hope all is well.
Good morning David,
The Poppa Speed funny car race was scheduled for July 18th.
When is the funny car race going to be run? How soon after the race will our cars be returned?
Memember name: Po'Boy Racing Name: Gene Coombs Race Entered: Drag Racing "stock" Funny Cars. Cars entered 1 red and 1 purple Mustang funny cars. Confederate Flag on each of them.
Yes, I would like to request my cars back thank you.
Hope all is well with LOS & his family
At this point it is clear you aren't running the races.
You have between 100 to 150 of other people's cars in your possession and all our return money.
Because you should still have this return money, please return the Speed Blaster funny car and Hot Stuff funny car to me. Please advise when it has been mailed.
Poppa speed invitational (5 events) ???
Charger summer series ???
Dixie GP ???
Boneyard Classic ???
Gov'ner vs CCM ???
Muscle Mania (3 events) ???
"Z" series ???
I think people are interested to know if any of these races will actually be run??? Time and start date??? Are any in preproduction or post production??? Any can cellations??? Are the cars of those who've actually withdrawn from these events in the mail???
I've messaged David (LoS) to try and get some sort of status update.
Hopefully he'll post something here or at least reply back to me so I can pass it on. I know the silence is worst part and I share everyone's frustration with the situation.
I know all this has probably generated some ill will towards Redline Derby Racing, and as much as I can, I apologize. This is the risk when you crowdsource events but nothing like this has happened in past years, so this is very unique. I appreciate everyone's support and patience, and even though we've hit a rought patch, I hope you continue to use Redline Derby as a meeting place and resource for all things diecast racing.
I got a quick update from David...first and foremost, everything is fine and happy with him & his family. There are no major complications or bad situations. But it sounds like his family is going through a lot of changes in the "positive" sense and that's impacting all the free time.
He told me he expects to post some racing videos and results this weekend. Didn't say which events or anything else. Sounds like racing is happening, it's just slow and steady when time allows. He knows the backlog of racing is long and everyone is getting antsy.
And that's all I know. He provided no further details or schedule or anything. I trust he's doing what he can, when he can. I know asking for patience is hard at this point, but that's the best I can give at this point.
It's sad when you see him posting pictures of his new car daily on Facebook and cant even respond to comments on our cars. It's not that difficult to go to the post office to return cars that we included shipping, a box and packing materials with but whatever... I'm done. If I ever get my cars back it will be nice oh and the comment "this has never happened before" I would like to reference bare muscle from 2 years ago. League of speed still has those and that series has never been finished.
Mic drop have a nice weekend and I'll run RLDRL tomorrow and get cars returned Tuesday at the latest.
It's unfortunate, some of these races were the first races I've ever entered. Thankfully I've had many enjoyable experiences since then and for the most part everywhere I've raced has been great. I know for one, building these cars is a time consuming process if you want to send anything competitive. Many of us await the return of these cars to send them somewhere else also. I think this is an awesome place to bring racers together and I've really appreciated the way Brian has helped promote everything we do. That being said there is going to have to be some changes for 2021 if most of us are going to feel confident sending in our hard work. I've offered to help and am hosting the Nov leg of races and will do more in 2021 if needed. If you race at my venue it will be on schedule and you will get your cars back in a reasonable amount of time. We can make this work really nicely but not like this.
It's totally fair to have lost some confidence. It's completely justified. But remember that we lose confidence in people, not places. And thankfully, this site isn't just for Redline Derby races...it's for everyone's races.
The purpose of this site is to connect and promote...to promote the hobby and races happening around the world, and to connect people that want to race and learn. If I never host another race again, this site will continue to be a resource for those that do.
Making changes is up to the people that are doing the organizing and racing. In this specific case, I think the person is well aware and his choices going foward will determine if you choose to race with him again. It's that simple.
