Cool Dog Days of Summer Off-road Championship Series


Who’s ready for a fun and exciting new 10th scale off-road series hosted at Pit Stop Hobbies and Mushroom Bowl Tracks?!

2016 Dog Days of Summer Championship Race Series is a new 10th scale race series we decided to put together to fill the void of 10th scale series in this area.

Series awards will be given to the top 3 in each class after the last race of the series.
There must be at least 5 entries at 3 of the 4 races in order for a class to be considered for series awards.

Points cumulated at each race
TQ +1 - 1st - 100, 2nd - 99, 3rd -98, and so on

The series award will be based on your best 3 finishes of the 4 series races.

Entry Fees:
$25 First Class $20 each additional class.

Race Dates:
  • 7/03 @MBRC
  • 7/17 @ PSH
  • 7/31 @ MBRC
  • 8/14 @ PSH

Classes:
  • 2wd Stock Short Course Truck
  • 2wd Mod Short Course Truck
  • 2wd Mod Stadium Truck
  • 2wd Stock Buggy
  • 2wd Mod Buggy
  • 4wd Short Course Truck
  • 4wd Mod Buggy

Door Prizes:
Each entry will give you 3 raffle tickets.
Additional raffle tickets can be purchased up until the race start time. These will be
Proceeds from raffle tickets go towards a grand prize gift certificate for the shop that the race is taking place at. Only original entry raffle tickets will be drawn for this prize.
50/50 raffle tickets can be purchased up until the start of the Mains. One ticket will be pulled from the 50/50 pool and that ticket holder will win 50% of the cash received from the 50/50 raffle sales. The other half of the proceeds will go towards shop gift certificate for the shop that the race is taking place at.

Smaller door prizes awarded throughout the day. These will be a combination of the race entry and additional purchased raffle tickets. Winners will play a chance game (ducks, cups, etc) to determine which prize box to choose from. Each winning raffle will be set aside and later added back in for the larger door prizes.

Shop Gift Certificate. We will only pull from the original entry raffle tickets for this prize.

Larger door prizes awarded at the end of the evening by raffle draw. The original entry raffle tickets will be added to the pool along with previous pulled raffle tickets.

The Tracks:
Mushroom Bowl
960 W Cypress St
Kennett Square, PA

Pit Stop Hobbies
262 W Main St
Mount Joy, PA

Registration Process:
After you unload your stuff to your pit space you’ll need to go to the registration table (look for signs). Have your transponder numbers ready before you get there. I recommend writing them down or taking a pic.
Fill out the registration form and take it into the hobby shop to make payment. The hobby shop will stamp your registration form as paid and you’ll then bring it back to the registration table. You will then receive a door prize ticket for each entry. You can also purchase more door prize tickets at the registration table.

Event Sponsors:
Please take a moment to check out our event sponsors for the series. Without their help we could not pull off a fun event like this.

If you're on a mobile device it's cutting off the right side of the image that shows the Pit Stop Hobbies dates.

The first race of the series was this past Sunday July 3rd at The Mushroom Bowl. We had 68 entries and the day is packed full of great racing, door prizes, and all around fun. Special thanks to Marc Nelson and Jim Cook for putting on such a great show. Attached are the results.
