    New here, from Minneapolis. I've got a buddy who has helped with a charitable pinewood race and he said they've been thinking about throwing out a 4 figure pot for their race to attract more interest. Anyone heard of such a thing?

    What I know is 1 class, 1 race, and a $1,000 first prize. Something smaller for 2nd and 3rd. I've been told race rules will be published mid-September. Proxy/mail-in cars will be accepted. More to follow...

    In MSP? That's in my area. I could make it live!

    I wouldn't say that. There are some really fast racers in the MSP area. Lightning Boy for one.

    Yeah,
    Racing in my bubble, I am amazed when a big race comes together how many & how fast guys are.
    It's fun to watch & 20th place doesn't sting as bad as it use to, "cause it's not 30th ".

    I remember being excited at 14th place, in 2016 Nationals Street Stock, because it was on the front page! :D

    Being front page was a big accomplishment. Street Stock was the class to be in. I remember having over 60 cars in the Street Stock class at Nationals. It was the class everyone wanted to win.
