Thanks for the update, Carl...at least it should take less time for my cars to be shipped to Smitty(PA to ME). No worries, he'll have my entries well before 2/23.

Well, I have 4 slow cars ready to go, and there's still time to find/build faster ones! Deadline coming up fast.

Sweet mammajamma!

So we would need 2 throphy's? Maybe make a Featherweight Cup, assuming we'll do this challenge again...

A Featherweight Cup?
Great idea! Just so long as it's not a red solo cup on a pedestal!

I have some diecast from an anonymous donor for awards and/or schwag. Thanks again to he/she knows who!

Currently accepting more. Anybody?

As long as the red solo cup is full of beer...might be ok.

Crap... not sure if i'll make the deadline or not. I still don't even have a scale.

I still don't even have a scale.

The Redline Derby Fantasy cars have the weights listed of a lot of stock cars.

I ordered a scale from the place Carl did, got to my work in about 4 days using standard shipping....which might have been free?

if you are running some stock cars let me know, if I have them in my collection I can weigh them and let you know!
