There's nothing quite like something going fast that was never really intended to go fast...hence, Station Wagons going racing. The concept is simple, but there will be some restrictions to keep the racing close.

Rules & Restrictions

  • Weight - 57 grams
  • Size restrictions; fits on an orange track wide, 2" high and no longer than 3-1/8" long
  • Cars per entrant/household 2 per entrant allowed...no more than 4 per household
  • Brand, body style, year, make/model- foreign or domestic production station wagons are allowed in the race
  • Wheel limitations, requirements; all cars must run production skinny wheels on the front and production, black 5-spoke wheels on the rear...and by production, that is what I mean...no sanding, no polishing, no burnishing...nothing done to the outer surface to improve performance. And no type of wheel inserts or bearings either. The axles must be production-type axles...the axles may be polished...axle tubes are allowed 
  • Must be drilled rivets
  • Dry lubes only
  • Misc requirements, Chassis may be altered. The Traction Event rule is in place...if your car is more than 3 grams over the limit, it will be painted pink and raced, but, it will not count

That's pretty awesome sounding! Call it Drag-on Wagon Series. 

There are stock eliminator and Super Stock wagons still around, people ran wagons because of weight transfer and simple traction control for a reason. Those things run deadly accurate indexes in their classes so don't be fooled. I have a friend that ran a 66 Valiant SW and trailered so many people from Gainesville to Immokalee they put out a bounty on him. 

  • Oh, I know...there are a lot of mean wagons out there...which I think is awesome! — 72_Chevy_C10
  • '81 Malibu wagon in Stock Eliminator for the win. — KandORacing

Chevelle wagon body, 34 Ford chassis , stock, un-touched axles/wheels... 55g, ASW. I haven't had much luck running all small wheels, but I thought I'd give it another shot.

I'm in....and at this point in my infancy of mod/custom, I'll be happy if it the cars just finish the race. I've got a Fangula and Surf Crate I can pirate the front wheels and axels from, also can we stick with the stock paint scheme?

OK...question. If we can use FTE axels, can  wheels still be on them as well?  I ask because I have a Fast Fish ( the purple one that came in the 2013 or 2014 mystery pack) with what looks like the FTE wheels, which are 5 spoke, but it does not run like a 05-06 FTE by any stretch ( why it's in the cull/weed out bin). My plan is to take the front wheels and axel off the Fangula and the rear wheels and axel off the Fast Fish and put them on a Chevy Nomad from a Muscle Mania 5-pack that is an absolute sled. I don't want to break any rules.

  • Just to keep everything fair, I'd like to have everyone use the same style wheels...so, no, I'd like you to use 5-spokes. Thanks for asking — 72_Chevy_C10
  • OK, just wanted to mnake sure — LeagueofSpeed

Ok, does it have to be this 5 spoke wheel, or any 5 spoke that is not FTE? The Nomad pictured above has a different 5 spoke than the Chevelle, and the one on my Chevelle is 5 spoke but different than the two mentioned. My Chevelle has stock HW PR5's Sorry for so much FYI, but just trying to play fair.Hot Wheels Matchbox diecast cars

LoS, Both of my cars have 5SP wheels on the rear, one is large, and the small.  Front wheels and SK5, again just two different sizes medium on the Nomad, and small on the Chevelle

  • Clear on that, just wondering if the HW PR5 is OK, since it is a 5 spoke production wheel — LeagueofSpeed
  • Also the Chevelle looks like the older 5 spoke design and the Nomad looks like the newer 5 spoke being put on the Muscle Mania cars. — LeagueofSpeed

OK....got everything ready to build my cars.

League of Speed will be racing a 55 Chevy Nomad and a 70 Chevelle SS Wagon. 

Does it have to be a Hot Wheels casting?
