All out Valentine's Rat-Rod Event. Going to try and run this on the Road Course if I get it up and running on time, otherwise it will be on the Drag Strip. See Comment Below for Image Ideas.

Rules & restrictions

  • Modified entries only
  • 0g maximum weight
  • 3.25in. long x 2in. tall x 1.25in. wide
  • Limit 3 entries per household
  • Anything
  • Any - if wet, please be sure that it's not going to make a mess anywhere. If can't promise, I would recommend a Dry Lube then.

Rat-Rod Definition (Dictionary.com)

A rat rod is a custom car with a deliberately worn-down, unfinished appearance, typically lacking paint, showing rust, and made from cheap or cast-off parts.
Rat rod is a variant of hot rod, a term for a custom car, usually modified from a classic car for greater speed, that has been in use since at least the 1940s.

Dates & deadlines

All entries must be received by the host before Monday, 2/7/2022. Racing is scheduled for Monday, 2/14/2022. Results will be posted on or after that date as is convenient for the host.

How to enter

Contact the tournament host to get the shipping address for entry.

Include at least $6 for return shipping if you want your entries back. Entries not getting returned will be given to the winner as part of the prize.

Include a Race Entry ID slip with your entry

Track

Racing will be on the Twin Canyon Run Road Course. View track profile and specs

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.

Penalties/DNF

So there are only 2 Restrictions, It has to look like a Rat-Rod, and Cars have to fit the track. Being that we are running opened-wheeled car, I can not promise your car's axle(s) won't get bent during the racing. They can take a little bit of a beating, but with speed, weight, and flight (off the track), who knows what will happen. If there does become an issue, I will contact you before anything is done.

Prizes

Working on prize ideas. Would like to get a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prize. Stay Tuned for more information on this. (Any suggestions, please send a message)

Social Media

The Facebook group for Twin Canyon Run is www.facebook.com/groups/585092825908412 - When vehicles arrive picture is taken and they are posted in the group.  Hope to see your car(s) posted soon.

I'm a bit confused about the weight.  Does 0 gram mean no added weight or unlimited weight?

Cheers,

Numbskull Racing.


Bringing 3 to the race. See y'all again on the track
