Trophy and Bragging Rights


Races will be run on the Quest Speedway 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.


 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.

Alright...the Funny Car thread is Open for Business...Funny Cars are without a doubt my favorite Stocks to Race against one another...the first race I hosted and the first ever race on Tobacco Road was a Funny Car race...won by Mr RLD himself...BV.

It's fun for sure...the Legion is having our own little testing and tournament to decide our teams...

...so Good Luck to all in the first event of the Poppa Speed Invitational...The Funny Cars!!!!

  • Didn't even realize I was the first winner, ha! Guess I'll try to get my Funny Crown back. — redlinederby

I had more Funnies than I ever even knew thanks to Luke liking them so we did a showdown and these are my quickest two.  Not sure if they are even gonna be worth a flip but its what we got!


  • Love it!!! — LeagueofSpeed
  • Wait til you see my two. You'll be like what? No way. Both cars I sent dusted a mega graphics #3. I have my eyes on a faster one for next time. — CrazyEights
  • That Castrol can be very quick. I have a King Kenny with the same wheels and it's the fastest funny car I have. — Dadvball
  • I bought two king kennys and two castrol's in the search for some speed and they are all junk except this one. In fact, one of my complete garbage King Kenny's came with locked up front wheels and the casting of the chassis was incomplete and looks terrible. Fun fact...that same King Kenny is now part of my Ground Up build! Its called King Nothing because it has been made from two castings that were both complete duds. — Mattman213
  • I thought those pro-circuit wheels were all the rage? Especially when on a funny car. Goes to show you that a fast wheel can be a dud and sometimes a slow wheel can be a race horse — Uncle_Elvis
  • I've seen that GTX one in past races and it always seems like it places high. — redlinederby
  • I've seen people rave about those King Kennys, but if I had a choice of funny cars I would take a TRIX funny car, then a HERSHEY funny car, then a SPLATTER PAINT series FUNNY CAR.... in that order. But Unfortunately I didnt have any to spare and send in. — RIVERA_RACING

I don't see my name on the list. I sent in 2 Funny cars along with 2 Pro Stocks and 2 HW Dragsters.  Tracking says they were delivered July 3rd...

My 2 shipped out on Tuesday. 

  • Alright...I'll look for them sometime next week — LeagueofSpeed
  • Ain't that the truth. I mailed my cars for MDGs on Tuesday. they departed the post office and stopped tracking. — CrazyEights

We've still got 3 teams out...the PO has been...off to say the least...so with a trip coming up next week...we Go Green on the 15th

  • AWESOME hope my cars have a better showing then my camaro on KoTM lol — RAGTAG_JIM

No packages today...so still 3 teams out...Aug 15th we run'em

  • Does that mean all races are pushed back, or just the Funny Cars? — GenX_VintageRacing
  • ...everything will get pushed back one week — LeagueofSpeed
  • Man the Post office is so out of whack right now. — CrazyEights
  • no kidding...Red Pill mailed his off on Tuesday from GA and I'm in NC...still not here — LeagueofSpeed
  • ...yet my package from NC gets to Washington state in 2 days — LeagueofSpeed
  • my mdg cars left here. then came back. now it appears they are going out again. — CrazyEights
  • No more USPS for me if I can get around it. UPS has been really reliable especially compared to FedEx and USPS. — Mattman213
