We all know the long-chassis cars are great for speed but frankly, I'm tired to seeing them, so let's see how we handle short cars. Leave your Cadillac and Way 2 Fast chassis in the garage this time and start digging out your Cooper Minis and short Bugs.
This is a modified, 2-track series tournament on the Ohio Connection between Columbus to Dayton. This is a Mix-n-Match tournament so you can use any number of cars/parts to build your entries.

Scoring and Winning
Both tournaments in this series will be double-elimination tournaments. Each match-up will be heads-up race, one and done for both brackets. Lane selection will be random per random seeding order.
Racers will score +10 points for each win in the primary bracket and will receive +20 points for winning a bracket. No points for wins in the loser's bracket. The racer with the most accumulated at the end of the series will be declared the winner and receive the prize & victory sticker.
Cars will be weighed and checked for length at the first track. Any cars that fail inspection will be removed from the bracket. If a car exceeds more than 2g beyond the posted weight limit, the car will be DQed. If a car exceeds more than 1/8" beyond the posted length limit, the car will be DQed.
If a car comes off the track they are given one redo. If the car comes off the track again, it receives a DNF and accepts the loss, continuing accordingly.
