Round 1 of the 2016 Hot Wheels Rip'n'Race is in the books. We ended up having 40 cars entered. Should be a nice haul for someone. Since we had 40 cars, there were quite a few byes in the first round so if you didn't see your car racing tonight, tune in tomorrow for round 2. Enjoy!
Check out round 2 action.
Here are the quarter-finals, semi-finals and finals of the Holiday Rip'n'Race. Enjoy!!!
The inspiration for the Dukes of Hazzard Drag'n'Fly...
Here is how the track turned out.
The Dukes of Hazzard Drag'n'Fly will be part of the 2017 points series, so points will be awarded for place to go towards a racers 2017 points total.
Races will be videoed and posted online.
Cars due Jan 14, 2017. Racing will start the following week.
Local and Mail-in cars are welcome. Mail-in cars should be sent with return postage if the racer wants them back. Mail-in cars should also be accompanied with an entry form.
Mail cars to
P.O. Box 156
Cars entered in the Drag'n'Fly race must be stock cars with no modifications. However, dry lubes like graphite will be allowed. Cars do not need to be in the package, so rip those cars out and see how they fly before you send them in. ;)
Cars can be any brand 1/64 scale cars.
Any wheels are allowed.
Max length 4 inches
Max height 2.5 inches
Width - must fit on Hot Wheels orange track.
Racers may enter up to 6 cars. There will be a $1 entrance fee per car. If you are a member of the Diecast 64 club the entrance fee will be waived for yourself, friends, and family, for up to 6 cars.
Points will be awarded as follows:
10 points for 1st place
9 points for 2nd place
8 points for 3rd place
7 points for 4th place
6 points for 5th place
5 points for 6th place
4 points for 7th place
3 points for 8 place
2 points for 9 place
1 point for 10th place on down
Only the top finishing car will score points toward the racers 2017 Season point total. While a racers other cars will not score any points for them, it could cause another racer to not score as many points. ie if a racer has a 1st place car and a 2nd place car, they will only score 10 points towards their point total for the first place car. Nobody will get 9 points for second place. The 3rd place finisher will get 8 points.
We are racing the 2017 mainline cars to see which cars are the fastest. Along the way, you can play along in our Hot Wheels Fantasy Pick'em game for fun and prizes. Each week four 2017 Hot Wheels cars will face off to see who is the fastest. You will have the opportunity to pick who you think will be the winners. Points will be awarded for correct picks and totals kept over the eight weeks. At the end of the eight weeks a final bracket of the fastest cars will be raced. The person with the most points, including those from the final bracket, at the end of the eight week period will be declared the winner.
You can access each weeks bracket to make your picks by clicking on the link below. You can join in at anytime, so even if you haven't picked in previous weeks, make your picks and have some fun.
Diecast 64's 2017 Racing Season is about to get underway.
This year we will be racing on a variety of tracks including the Dukes of Hazzard Drag'n'Fly, the open road track Thunder Road, and our one of a kind Red Desert Baja track. We will also have several races on traditional downhill tracks.
Points will be awarded for each race and accumulated throughout the season.
Local and Mail-in cars are welcome. Mail-in cars should be sent with return postage.
