Round 1 provided some great racing! I especially enjoyed DS Racing’s come from behind victory in race 1 of group 6. Group 6 had 3 different cars with a first place finish with The Undertaker finishing first twice.  Group 2 had some great racing with Team Gigantor pulling off a big win in race 3, but CC’s Riders’ Corvette looked very strong throughout.  Groups 1, 3, 4, and 5 saw undefeated champions with G-Force Racing’s Invader, TS Racing’s Bullet Proof, DC Racing’s Clear Speeder, and Rhino Racing’s Nissan Skyline Redline.  Groups 2 and 4 needed a tie-breaker race to determine the #2 car to advance from those groups. When the dust all settled the following teams advanced.

G-Force Racing
Pineapple Racing
From Group 2
CC’s Riders

From Group 3

Four wild card cars were also selected to move on to round 2.  The wild card cars were the next highest point scorers that hadn’t already made it in. These cars were

DC Racing’s Lamborghini with 10 points
Red Rock Racing’s Hi-Roller with 10 points
DS Racing’s X-Steam with 10 points

H&J Racing’s Winning Formula and SS Racing’s Hi-Tech Missile  were the next highest scorers tied with 8 Points a piece.  A tie-breaker was run to see who would be the last car into round 2




H&J Racing’s Winning Formula came out victorious and became the last car to make round 2.
So the groups are set.
