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.

TBD at Meddlesome Brewing

Thanks to our friendly neighborhood coronavirus, we've had to postpone our first race. We will post updates here and on our Facebook page.

Use an official wood car kit or a similar kit from a hobby store. Check the rules for the event before building. Don't know where to get a kit? Ask us.

Every race will have a pre-race check-in and impound for inspections to verify the rules (if any) are followed.

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.
