This race has been postponed indefinitely due to acts of nature in my basement.
You're gonna need the luck of the Irish for this one. It's a St. Patrick's Day throwdown and only the strongest will survive. This is a royal rumble style elimination race for modified or stock cars.
This race is capped at 30 entries. If you intend to enter, you must comment below before 3/10/20 and include the number of cars you plan to send. Max 2 cars per household, please.
The order of racing will be determined by an entry draft that will be held on March 10. Names will be pulled at random and given an entry number. Your entry number will determine when your car enters race.
The race will start with entry #1 vs #2 and whoever wins keeps racing, the loser is out. This repeats until everyone has raced. The car that wins in the last race is the winner.

Race format and scoring
This is a head-to-head format with cars entered in their draft order (see above). A car stays alive when it wins 2 heats in a row with alternating lanes between runs. The losing car is eliminated, the winning car continues on. The last car that wins after all cars are entered is the winner.
No shows and cancellations
If you pull out of the event after the 3/10 entry draft or your cars don't make the deadline, your entry spots will be given to the next in line and everyone else will move up accordingly. Any changes in entry numbers will be updated on this thread.
Cars are given a grace of 1g over the stated weight limit to account for variance in scales.
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.
