JDC'S Hot Wheels Racing Teams

JDC442 Monday, 6/23/2014

Jump to last page

AS A COLLECTOR, I'VE GATHERED QUITE A FEW CARS OVER THE YEARS AND TOO MANY OF THEM ARE JUST SITTING IN BOXES TAKING UP SPACE.   IT’S TIME TO BUST THEM OPEN, AND TEST THEM FOR SPEED.  INSTEAD OF JUST GOING IT ALONE, I THOUGHT IT MIGHT BE FUN TO INVOLVE MY FELLOW REDLINE DERBY RACING FANS.   

HERE’S HOW IT WILL WORK.  EACH PARTICIPANT WILL BUILD AND MANAGE A THREE CAR TEAM.  TO BUILD THAT TEAM, YOU WILL CHOOSE THREE CARS FROM A POOL OF CARS (POSTED PICTURES OF THE CARS I’M WANTING TO TEST).  ONCE EVERYONE HAS CHOSEN THREE CARS FOR THEIR TEAM, THE RACING CAN BEGIN!  

***EVERYONE HAS COMPLETED THEIR TEAMS.  STAY TUNED FOR RACING!!**

RACE DAYS

RACING WILL BE TEAM VERSUS TEAM.   

MATCH UP EXAMPLE:  TRACTION EVENT'S 3 CAR TEAM WILL GO HEAD TO HEAD WITH REDLINE DERBY'S 3 CAR TEAM.  

EACH TEAM WILL FACE TWO OTHER TEAMS EACH RACEDAY (WHENEVER I’M ABLE TO SET UP MY TRACK AND RACE). 

TEAMS WILL BE RANKED BY THEIR CARS OVERALL WIN / LOSS RECORD

***YOU WILL BE ABLE TO REPLACE AN UNDER-PERFORMING CAR BY PICKING ANOTHER FROM A POOL OF REPLACEMENT CARS  *RULE DETAILS FORTHCOMING (SUBJECT TO CHANGE)

THERE WILL BE ELEVEN RACING EVENTS IN TOTAL, ALLOWING FOR EACH TEAM TO FACE EVERY OTHER TEAM TWICE DURING THE ENTIRE EVENT.  AFTER THAT, THERE WILL BE PLAYOFFS AND AN OVERALL CHAMPIONSHIP BETWEEN THE TOP TWO TEAMS.

This whole thing is by far the most "subtle" hint that people want the Fantasy League back. ;P

But I dig it. 


  • Definitely not quite the Fantasy League ; ) just a little something for the guys to follow between mail-in races. — JDC442

Okay, everyone has completed their teams.  I'd like to say that racing will be held every weekend, but unfortunately my life doesn't work like that.  Life gets busy sometimes as you all know, so I'm not going to hold myself to a schedule as such.  Racing will happen whenever the opportunity presents itself.  So stay tuned and I'll try to give you guys a heads up if I know when I'll be getting a couple of free hours to be able send some cars down the track. Thanks for participating, this should be fun!

The THIRD post will now become the "REPLACEMENTS" section. For now, I'm making the rule that if any of your cars lose 3 out of their 4 initial matchups, you will be able to swap out that car by picking a Replacement car as a Thumbs Up reply in that post.  After that I may change the "Replacement rule as I see fit".
