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.


If a car fails to meet any of the restrictions listed above, the car will not qualify for victory. Offending cars will still race. Finish position and any prize will go to the runner-up in the case of the 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 minimally repaired before the racing begins. Cars that break during racing will not be repaired or replaced.


The winner will receive a cup trophy.


League of Speed will be there... car per household or 1 car per Racer???

Any update on the track? I'm trying to decide on a car to send...

  • Yes it’s a road course with 3 turns. I’ll post a pic of the mock up in a comment here — RustBeltRacing

Here's the layout. Waiting for the 2 lane split turn to come in so I can tie everything down and dress it up. Both lanes are pretty even. Gets a little crazy when it opens up. There's a removable jump too for a future race.

  • Thanks for the peek. Gonna be a challenge modding for that track. Time to get to work on a car! — Peter_Bee
  • She's a doozie haha — RustBeltRacing
  • Looks Awesome cant wait to see the race!!!!! Hope my Z28 can handle it/beat some other cars.... i know it was fast on my track but i only have a straight away — RAGTAG_JIM
