Goodnight Trail , TX Scale 1/4 Mile

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.


Cars are given a grace of 2g 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.

1/4 Mile on Goodnight Trail is in the bag & in the can. Working on the editing, not my strong suit. Will post each segment as soon as I'm done. Computer gods willing.

Racing was fast and close. Several back and forths but, never went to a coin toss.

Good Luck racers Stage 5 next on Htown Hustle 3X 1/8th Mile

Awesome stuff, thanks for getting it all sorted and posted up!  Very odd results for my entries...well except for the Maroon 55 being a dud HA!  Was I reading right that my Aqua 55 ran a 2.047 in its first run (right lane)?  Crazy.  That car is mid pack of the 4 our teams mailed in but it really seemed to like your track early on and settled into a fairly consistent rythm after that.


  • Some cars really like a progressive downhill track. Glad to host your cars. — MDG_Racing
