Rules and Race Classes

Here are the different race classes we have each month.  For information on how to race and where to send cars CLICK HERE.

(Updated for 2019)

Open Modified 

This class is for cars that have been modified for speed. Usually some weight has been added and axles have been polished or changed. If you are new to racing but would like to start modifying cars, check out our speed tips. The winning car each month in this class will be kept here at D64 to be raced in a "Car Of The Year" race at the end of the season.  
This class is part of a point scoring championship series.

Official Rules 

  • Cars must be 57 grams or under. 
  • Cars may be modified for speed, looks, or both. 
  • Length: must be 3.75 inches or less 
  • Height: must be 2 inches or less 
  • Width: must fit on Hot Wheels orange track 
  • Dry lubes only 
  • 2 cars per entrant 
  • There is a $1 per car entrance fee.

Open Stock 

This class is for cars that have not been modified for speed. They are as they were when they were taken out of the package. However, dry lubes like graphite are allowed as it can be difficult to tell at times if it has been applied. So to ensure that everyone is on an equal playing field, graphite is allowed so that we don’t have to worry about it.

Official Rules

  • Cars must be stock - no modifications for speed other than dry lubes .
  • Dry lubes are allowed.
  • Cars may be any brand 1/64 scale.
  • Cars must be 3.75 inches or less in length. 
  • 2 cars per entrant 
  • There is a $1 per car entrance fee.

Sportsman

This class is for stock cars weighing in at 40 grams or less.  The idea here is to provide a race class that will be easier for beginners to be more competitive, while still providing a challenge for more experienced racers with deeper collections.  Most newer Hot Wheels cars come in around 40 grams or less and there is lots of really cool old stuff under 40 grams so this should be a class that will be easy for everyone to be involved in.

Feature Race 

Each month we usually have a race with a special theme or special rules. Sometimes it will be on a different track. This race will change each month. Sometimes it will be open to modified cars, sometimes only stock cars, sometimes it could be a rip’n’race. The goal of the feature race is to have an opportunity for racers to do something a bit different if they want and keep the racing challenging, interesting and fun.
