This race has been rescheduled and picked up by a new host
Please see the new thread for details.
Muscle Mania is a Race that consists of 3 Categories...
Some Racing Veterans may remember our November race as American Muscle...which that category is still viable and will still be recognized as American Muscle 4 this year...but there will no longer be a separate Stock and Modified Divisions...Stocks will be Racing Mods in all 3 Categories of the new setup. Hot Wheels produced the Mainline line of Muscle Mania...in which you have 3 types of Castings with definite differences...hence the 3 Categories of Muscle Mania 2020.
So pay attention to the year Models listed for the different Categories...
67 Plymouth GTX is American Street and 71 Plymouth GTX is American Muscle
65 Pontiac GTO is American Street and 67 Pontiac GTO is American Muscle
...Low Riders will be self explanatory
American Street is a category that I created with the help of MDG Racing...the specs on a American Street casting will become evident as you yourself start prepping for the Race...

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.
Cars are given a grace of 1g 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 victory. Offending cars will still race. Finish position and any prize will go to the runner-up in the case of the 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 minimally repaired before the racing begins. Cars that break during racing will not be repaired or replaced.
Trophy and Bragging Rights
There will be 3 Capped Fields of 32 Teams/64 Cars...Team must be 2 Car.
