Dukes of Hazzard Drag'n'Fly - 2017 Results

Well, the high flying action of round 1 is in the books.  There were some great races and some cool passes.  We had 60 cars racing so to make the bracket work out there were a few byes.  Fast Cash, HS Racing, Epic Racing, and Raptor Racing sat out this first round.  To advance to round 2, a car had to win 2 consecutive races.  The bracket was randomly generated, but I made sure nobody was racing themselves in round 1, With being able to enter up to 6 cars, some teams are sure to race themselves deeper into the bracket.  After watching the video, you can go to the team page and check out who has what cars still in.  But enough talk...let's get to the races!

Enjoy!

  • Width - must fit on Hot Wheels orange track.
  • Cars must be a car from a movie or TV show.  Cars cannot be a character car or cars that represent movies or shows, but the actual car in the movie or show. You can enter cars that the manufacturers made to represent cars in movies or TV or you can modify and paint your own.  If you modify and paint your own, it doesn't have to be the exact year, make, model, or wheels, but should be close. Do your best to replicate the paint job, but it doesn't have to be perfect.
When you send your cars include the movie or show that it is from.

Here is a little inspiration...




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.
