I've been pro wrestling fan pretty much my whole life and one of the greats, Dusty Rhodes, passed away in June. He has no connection to cars or racing Hot Wheels (except that both wrestling and racing toy cars are ridiculous), but it's one small way I can pay tribute to a great entertainer.
The gimmick here is each racer enters 2 cars: one modded, one stock. The stocks race in their own bracket, as do the mods. The 2 winning cars will then go on to a Best of 5, head-to-head shootout.
The racer with the ultimate winner will receive all the stock entries as their prize. Modded cars will be returned to their owners if they want, otherwise they'll go into the prize pot.
TractionEvent does it again. His Bone Shaker XL mod out-paced the stock Pocket Bikester of CliffordShaw. TE wins himself all the stock cars entered and adds yet another notch in his belt.
