Which Musclecar Internet site really has the greatest drivers and the fastest cars? Find out at Cyberbrawl 2000 - "The War to Settle the INTERNET Score" - a shootout which will include teams from some of the most recognizable sites on the Internet (if you're a gearhead, that is).

Cyberbrawl 2000 will be held at Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green, Kentucky, on Saturday, July 22, 2000. The racing will start in the morning, and go all day and into the evening (we are planning to have pre-registration the preceding Friday afternoon and evening). The race will be open to the owners of any vehicle who frequent one or more of the following sites:

Tealnet
Stangnet
SyTy.org
LS1.com
LS6.com
The Corral
Club DSM
454SS.com
SN95.com
Thirdgen.org
Mustangworld
Mustangworks
V6Power.com
Ford Vs Chevy
Corvette Forum
TurboBuick.com
CamaroZ28.com
Musclestang.com
Dakota-Truck.net
Mustang of the Month
SuperStallions of the Net.
National Lightning Owners Club
Mustang & Camaro Online Magazine

Each site will have a team which will compete against the other teams in the "Website Shootout", which is an Open-Comp format. This type of racing gives everybody an equal chance to win, while providing the excitement of qualifying, and running off of a .400 Pro Tree.

One of the most hotly debated musclecar topics over the last several years is the ongoing F-body versus Mustang battle. Cyberbrawl has 2 classes to settle this score: One for naturally aspirated cars, and the other for cars with power adders. The F-body vs Mustang shootout will be run in the same style as the old GN vs Mustang shootouts that have been going on for years. The cars from each team will make 3 qualifying passes (time permitting). The team with the least number of cars determines the number of participants on each side. The two lowest qualifiers will run first, then the next slowest, then the next, and so on, till the top two qualifiers run each other in the final. The side with the most victories wins the shootout. In the case of a tie, whichever side had the car with the quickest pass during eliminations wins.

Another popular class is the "King of the Internet Street" heads-up shootout. This is for licensed, registered, and insured STREET cars. There are already several 9 and 10 second cars signed up for this one. Run whatcha brung - just make sure you brung enough!

Finally, Cyberbrawl has one of the first classes ever devoted solely to trucks - the Truck Open-Comp Shootout. This race will pit the owners of Lightnings, Dakota's, 454SS's, Syclones/Typhoons, and more against each other to determine the baddest truck on the net. This shootout promises to be very exciting, and will feature a very diverse mix of very fast trucks.

Don't care to race? Cyberbrawl will also feature a car show, to be sponsored by Mothers Polish. Final details are still being worked out, but it promises to feature a most diverse group of musclecars from many different manufacturers. Please check www.cyberbrawl.com often for updates!

Cyberbrawl's main gaol is to provide an event for folks to compete, in a friendly, relaxed environment. It is not designed to be a 'money event', and thus avoids the ultra-competitive environment that often takes away from some of the enjoyment that sometimes accompanies big-money races. Cyberbrawl is, first and foremost, for FUN. To that end, there will be no cash awards. Winners of various classes will be presented trophies, a hearty handshake, and the pride that comes with knowing that they are the best of the best on the net. This also allows Cyberbrawl to keep the cost of the event low - $35 for the car and driver for the entire day, regardless of class. This goes down to $25 for the car and driver if you pre-pay before July 1. Spectators are $5 each, and kids under 16 are free.

To compete at Cyberbrawl, online registration is required. It's very easy, and will only take a few minutes. Once your registration request is received, you'll be e-mailed further pertinent information. Questions can always be addressed to Bob Cosby at bob@cyberbrawl.com.
