Prizes

Small Trophy and some Prize Cars...and of course the Glory of Victory!!!

Track

Races will be run on the Tobacco Road track.

Race format and scoring

This will be a single-elimination tournament. A car will move on in the bracket only when it wins two races in a row. Cars will alternate lanes between each race.

The car that wins the final race will be declared the winner. Race host has final decision in all races.

Bracket seeding will be random but will try to avoid having an entrant race themselves, especially in the first round.

Penalties/DNF

Cars are given a grace of 2g over the stated weight limit to account for variance in scales.

If a car fails to meet any of the restrictions listed above, the car will not qualify for tournament prizes. Offending cars will still race. Prize will go to the runner-up in the case of penalty car winning.

Cars that fail to run or fit on the track, or that happen to break during racing, will forfeit their matches. Cars that arrive broken will attempt to be repaired before the tournament. Cars that break during the tournament will not be repaired or replaced.

I need to find more muscle cars with proper track width but I’ll at least enter 1 in each class. 

  • Sounds good — LeagueofSpeed
  • A Chrysler 300 chassis will fit under a Javelin body...hint, hint :) — 72_Chevy_C10
  • Lol. Thanks Chevy. I think I just modded a 300 and it became my second fastest car. I may have to pull it apart along with the green Javelin. But I think the wheels may be too tall. — Jav74

Did I already send in my castings?

And stocks can use graphite?

  • Yaits in the rules that dry lubes are allowed. Stocks and mods included, most races on RLD allow the use of graphite. Only exception I’ve seen is a race that involves unopened cars race them as they are right out of the blister. — 41-14
