I will be racing on this day with my vitz or van and have my team run their fast cars. It would be nice to have all the cars on the track for the viewers to see.

If you want to join and don't have a team just sign up here and we'll find you one. I don't have a team yet so if you guys want to be in my team, you're more than welcome. I am not taking an expert drivers, just experience novice/sportsman.

See you all there!

Ryan, I have my team already... sorry! I don't think I should have you on my team since you're not novice. You should grab some sportman drivers and build your team...

The Mall Mayhem Marathon was a great event. We have fifteen racers ready to battle for the top position on the podium. The race start we Stephen driving his AWD pan car for the first sixty minutes. He put his team into the lead early. Team 4 (Ian, Fernando, Paul) had the best strategy and were super fast with their driver/car changes. Everyone that raced a six hour event deserves to win.

Officail Results:

1st: Team 3 (Bryan, Stephen, Ryan) 2332 Laps

2nd: Team 4 (Ian, Fernando, Paul) 2298 Laps

3rd: Team 5 (Stephen, Alan, Floyd) 2267 Laps

4th: Team 1 (Bernie, TJ, Art) 2256 Laps

5th: Team 2 (Richard, James, Steven) 2085 Laps



During the last hundred minutes of the event we had a system error and some cars were not counting. I handled the situation to what I thought was the best compromise. I hope everyone can understand that it was out of my control. For a race that has over 2000 laps I would not be able to go back and split laps. If anyone knows how this situation is handled at other events, I would like to know for the next time if the problem happens again.

Team 4, I have your trophies here at the store. Drop by and pick them up when you get a chance.

Lastly, I would like to thank all the racers who showed up and supported our event even though they could not race and our sponsers. (Hobbytown USA SJ, Kyosho America, Coconut Grove, Eagle Cafe, Two Face Cards, Smart Products, Reflex Racing, PN Racing)

See you at the track.
