Jump to last page

A week of diverse racing challenges with a different event each day complete with great video. Tracks include: 

1) a monster 50-foot driveway drag on blutrack

2) a traditional drag race in the 20-25 foot range

3) a funnel race that begins as 4 tracks, funnels to 2 and then to 1.  Crashes are possible in the funnel!

4) Open track race with sizzler fat tracks and curves - real passing!

5) Open track drag on sizzler fat tracks - blocking is legal!

Specs are going to be broad to encourage creativity.  With only one or two cars and so many distinct tracks, racers will have to make some guesses on a winning formula.  Hopefully this will bring out a variety of individual track winners and a lot of potential series winners in the final event. Stocks and mods are allowed to maximize participation and (respectful) smack talk.  New and veteran racers welcome for this raceapalooza!

Yup, put me in coach... that rascal Jiggie has had 2 years to think about his entry, hope he has detailed tail lights... i'll probably get the chance to see 'em...

 Of the 5, When is the elimination race going to happen... I see casualties at every "merge", maybe the crash race should be last...

  As cars are eliminated, the pack becomes closer in speed, the final 4 is going to be nasty...

 Wonder if any Mad Max Modds will show for this one ?

  • Good idea smitty, "contact" races will run last — cliffordshaw
  • Only the strongest will survive — JDC442

The confident racers will run open wheels... (Insert evil sounding laugh here)

Hello Racers,

I am back and ready for some tense racing action. The Hot Wheels World Race event is inspired by a childhood hotwheels series that I loved growing up. Five teams of drivers race along dangerous environments for a prize of 5 million dollars and a to be claimed the best driver in the world. 

In the Hot Wheels World Race pure speed is not the only deciding factor in winning. Drivers must be able to handle intense curves, loops and jumps as well. This series will be intense and will reveal the best overall car. 

The races will vary from 2 simple drag races, 1 funnel drag race, and two open track races. (No loops or jumps) 

Im fired up about this event. Trust me, you guys are not going to want to miss out on this event!

Im still working on some last minute details. First I need to know how many of you are planning on participating. If you are please post a message. 


Thanks guys, and I'll be on here frequently with updates. Many to come
