Redline Derby Racing is happy to partner with BlueLine Racing, Indiana Diecast Racing, and the Diecast Racing Report to bring you the Redline Derby Racing Summer Pro-Am kicking off this May and running through August.
The RLD Summer Pro-Am is a series that will challenge 16 Pros and 16 Amateurs to a battle of endurance as their cars travel across the country to race on drag strips and open road tracks.
We'll crown one Pro champion and one Amateur champion. We'll also be seeing a championship Pro-Am team, as each amateur will be paired with one pro and their points combined against other teams.

Dates & Deadlines
This is a traveling series. Cars will be sent as a group from track to track. Entries only need to worry about one deadline, shipping only once.
All entries must be received before Sunday, May 16, 2021.
This is a hard deadline since this is a series and cars need to be sent to the next track as soon as possible after the first stage.
Be sure to include a Race Entry ID slip with your car
Please include at least $5.00 if you want your entry returned after the series. Entries not getting returned will be given to the winner as part of the prize.
Include shipping fee with your entry or you can send via Paypal. Just send any online payments as a "gift" and include a note what the payment is for (helps me stay organized).
If you're an international entry, send no money. We'll figure out an amount and online exchange if you want your car returned after the event.

There is no weight grace for this event! Cars cannot be more than 80g. If you're worried about it, play it safe and consider maxing your car at 79g.
If a car fails to meet any of the restrictions listed above, the car will race but will not be eligable for points.
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.
Please keep in mind this event is as much about endruance as it is speed. Your cars will be traveling a lot and racing on different styles of track. Design and build your cars to be tough and ready for some clangin' and bangin'.
Specific prize details are still being finalized.
Champions will receive some sort of trophy or prize item.
