Rob,
Thanks for your Email,we are very aware of other club races in fact alot of our vehicles that were chosen, have been in other club races, and were chosen from from these races,such as Gregs Camaro,Cat in the Hat GTO,Monopoly Truck,Boogie vans one of each Chevy,Dodge,Ford,I will have all of these posted on November 8th,I think you will be very impressed with all the challengers,we spared no expense,after viewing all the challengers, if you feel we are missing anything,that is what the public participation is all about,we are allowing 20 vehicles from both sides to enter,to try and beat the winner of the 50/50 challenge fastest time when the 50/50 challenge is over.

We will be allowing any vehicle in this race,funny Cars,redlines,vans,trucks,buses.I will tell you after 50ft on this track everything equals out, JL Lightning Speed vehicles with racers edge tires,and HW vehicles with FTE's,can give all of these heavier legends a run for there money,I would wait too see what the 100 challengers are from both sides first,before sending in your entrant.Thanks Rick

Hot Wheels always had the fastest cars when I was little, but JL wasn't around then. I'll be surprised if JL wins over HW, but that's what it's all about.

Good luck and good race.

From the non qualifier times JL had the fastest time with a 7.01,I do not know the top 50 times, but I have a feeling it is going to be really close,I am curious if we are going to have a 5 second vehicle,even 5.99999 would be a 5 second vehicle,can't wait.:wave:
