Our family dog, Dusty, passed away this Easter and he loved riding in cars as much as he loved chasing Hot Wheels when we'd play with them on the floor. In his memory, we'll have a good old fashioned rip-n-roll tournament. Find a car and send it in as-is...no modding, no nothing. Any and all cars welcome, but this is for pinks! Winners will get all the cars.
Highlights & Results
Congratulations to G-Force Racing out of Utah. Their Firebird Funny Car survived all extremely close rounds of racing. G-Force will receive all the cars entered in this tournament. Bravo to League of Speed for claiming the runner-up position with his Preying Menace car.
Thanks to everyone that sent in cars. All the races were close and I felt anyone could have gone home with the gold.

How to enter
Send your entries to:
Redline Derby Racing c/o Brian Vaughn
PO Box 842
Grove City, OH 43123
Please include a $1.00 entry fee. This will go toward shipping the prize pot of cars to the winner. Please print and include a Race ID slip with your entry
The winner will receive all the entry cars. The number of cars will depend on the number of entrants and how many cars they choose to enter.
Races will be run on the Redline Derby Speedway track.
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 entrants race themselves in the final.
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 break during the tournament will not be repaired or replaced.
He was a good dog that had a rough start in life but eventually ended up with our family where he spent the last few years of his life surrounded by love and happiness. We miss you, buddy.
