Ahhh yes...the GUD Division...the most modified division of all in the Poppa Speed Invitational. Imagine building something like the above pic and you've got the idea. Similar to the Boneyard Classic, it's a ground-up build.

Axel Channels must be a minimum of 1 7/8" apart to a maximum of 2 1/4" apart. Rear Wheels must be fats and front wheels must be skinny. Must have either a rear engine or mid engine in the build with a weight limit of 45g.

Please post questions, comments, and other discussion on the main Poppa Speed Invitational thread.

Track

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.

Penalties/DNF

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 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.
