I've got the bracket done/set....I excluded my team from the 1st Rd Bye draw, as I feel all host should do, and used a cup with all teams names in it and a flip of the coin to set the bracket for Round 1. My youngest pulled the teams for the 1st Rd byes and my oldest pulled the teams to set the match-ups in Grid A and Grid B.....now watch another team show up tomorrow :) I think all the cars are here and we are set to go racing!!!!

  • Of four teams that made the bye, the car was decided by a coin flip between the two...heads for one and tales for the other. — LeagueofSpeed

Right off the bat I think the King Kenny is the one to beat. They have been pretty fast on the LJLRC track.  With a little graphite that one could be a monster. 

  • It's most likely fast if CCR sent it for sure — LeagueofSpeed

Finish it up tomorrow...we lost the natural light and a light bulb, battery went critical on the Ipad between the 2nd and 3rd race between Lady of Speed and Color Country, plus we had to eat dinner....and youtube is very slow right now with most likely all the Memorial Day uploads.....stay tuned as we crown a Champion tomorrow!!!

  • Great job on the racing and video. So many very close races. — Dadvball
  • Thanks DVB...my youngest is in charge of production...proud of her and the track — LeagueofSpeed
  • ...also, congrats on making the 1/4 finals — LeagueofSpeed
