Wood Block Car Racing for Grownups

Started by some scout dads and former scouts, MDnA is an excuse to keep racing pinewood cars, and not have to keep pretending our kids built them. We will race, trash-talk, and drink some great local brews.

We'll have multi-heat races that follow standard rules, 'outlaw' races where we bend the rules as much as we can, and other special events.

MDnA uses a classic, wooden, 4-lane track with modern electronics to collect times and 'to-scale' MPH. Races will be scheduled in the Memphis, TN area.

WE'RE BAAACK!

2021 RACE #1 - MEDDLESOME BREWING - CORDOVA, TN

Well, COVID-19 was the undisputed champ for the 2020 season, but we're gonna try and take the cup back!

Join us at Meddlesome Brewing in Cordova on Saturday April 24th for the first race of the 2021 season. We'll be set up outside near the rear patio.

The easy part. Race officials will schedule, stage, and run every heat. Races may change per event, but most will involve multiple heats, averaging times for overall scores.
