Gonna have to chunk out these videos, so here's the first four qualifying races. I think YouTube changed some of there tools again so HD quality isn't what I was hoping for, but good for now. I'll try harder on the next videos.

And that was the final RLD mail-in race of 2019 is in the books! Congratulations to Go Time on a great win, edging out 41-14 in the final to take home the Bluebird Special crown. 

There was some awesome shots traded in Round 2 between LoS and Mattman213...it went 7 matches with a tie to boot! Not to mention, League of Speed had a hard fought battle coming out of Round 1. Highlights playlist from all all rounds below. Full results here.

I'll be packaging up cars as soon as I can but they might not get done before all the holidays coming up. If you need your car back sooner than later, PM me and I'll do my best to get them out. Otherwise, I appreciate the understanding.

Here's hoping everyone has a safe and fun holiday with their family and friends. And to hoping Santa puts a few cars in your stocking.


  • Wow!!! Good stuff, good racing and both cars went further than I could ever hope. Congrats Go_Time and 41-14!!! — Mattman213
  • Thanks for hosting. That was a lot of fun. I didn't come out with a win but I sure gave Go Time two super close races. Bring on 2020!! — Red_Pill-Racing

This was a suprise...I wasn't sure if I was gonna make it out of the first round facing NDR.  Great racing and great builds everyone.  Thank you for hosting Sir...well done!


  • Congratulations on the win and another great build. I was right there with you but didn't quite have enough to get it done. See you in 2020! — Red_Pill-Racing
  • Yes you were. what I failed to mention was that I knew if I managed to get passed the first round then I'd be facing Red Pill...another heavy hitter. Great racing! — Go_Time
  • Good race and congrats on kicking my butt — NDeavers80

Thanks for hosting. That was a lot of fun. I didn't come out with a win but I sure gave Go Time two super close races. It would be really cool to see some grudge races after the tournament. Id love to see my 510 outrun MDG, NDR, 41-14 and LOS. LOL. Bring on 2020!


  • HA!!!! Red Pill. You couldn’t outrun my grandmother. LMAO. ;-) — 41-14
  • But I think that would be a good race between mine and yours. — 41-14

Not the triumphant return to racing I had hoped for... But it's great to be building and racing again with you all. 

Brian thanks for hosting.  Congrats to the winner!

Overall there were 4 match-ups that went more than the standard 2 runs, which is the most I've seen on my track in while, if not ever. I should record my microphone one time when I do these because whenever there is a close battle - especially a tie - it's quite the response.


  • Ha I was thinking the same thing when the Wife's wagon went back and forth with LOS's car, woulda loved to have heard the commentary LOL — Mattman213

  • No surprise here...you're building quite well right now — LeagueofSpeed
  • Well what can I say. I learnt from one of the best out there. — 41-14
