Why report race results?
Reporting the results of your race is great for everyone. It keeps people interested in your races and events, plus it gives racers a history of their finishes, which is cool to see and look back on. Events that include reported results also get ranked and promoted a little higher within the web site.
You can report 1st thru 5th place for a race. You don't have to provide all five, but you are encouraged to report the Top 3 if you can.
If you start typing in a racer name and that person is already a member of Redline Derby, you should choose their name from the list. Wins are tracked and accumulated over time for members only.
However, if you have a racer that is not already an RLD member, you may type in their name and it will be saved. (This does NOT create an account for them).
You may also paste in a YouTube video link for highlights and/or provide some commentary. All information you provide will be displayed on a special Race Review front page for the topic. This gives visitors a quick recap of the race, and then they may continue on to the normal thread as usual.
You are encouraged to provide some sort of race recap, even if it's just the top finishers. The more you can share, the better people will be able to understand what happened in your race.
You can add results to your race thread at anytime, so if you had a race that ended recently, you can go back and add results for the Race Review page. Give it a try!

What happens when you report results
When you submit results for a race, any RLD member will have those stats appear on their profile page and in other locations on the web site.
