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 to weigh 65g...NO TE Rule for this race.
 
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.

Do the 3 cars have to contain parts from only that brand? An all hot wheels car, all mbx car...ect?

  • No...just the chassis and body must be from the same car — LeagueofSpeed
  • Nice. I was worried about the matchbox. I only have a couple and I didn’t want to have to sand the treads off of the edges. I never seem to find mbx cars that I like either. — Jav74
