Thanks to all those that responded this week to the challenge and signed up to race to the death!  We now have over 24 32 racers registered and even more on the way, so don't delay you still have almost nine days to register.

Some updates:

Nashh Kadavr has gone insane and decided to PAY FOR THE NEXT 20 ENTRIES!!!  He'll have a post up about it later and the first 20 comments asking for his help will get registered for FREE!  Wow, you can't beat that deal, so race on over and let Nashh know you want to die in a fiery flame ball of oozing fast death!

• Speaking of crazy, Alex from has offered 3 Standard Hosting Plans FREE FOR A YEAR!!  Good grief that's awesome.  The hosting plans will be offered to our racers in the order of their finish, so it's possible that someone even further down the finish line could take advantage of this incredible, not sold in stores, offer!  I'll have more on the official Death Race Blog later today.

I know there are a lot of you out there that have expressed interest in racing but that can't make it for one reason or another.  Believe me, I understand.  But I had to pick a date and a time, and no matter when it would've been it would've been bad timing for someone.  The plan, if this Death Race is successful, is to have more of them in the future.  I still don't know how often, but maybe twice a year?  We'll see how things go.  As much fun as it has been, it has also taken a lot of time to put together, coordinate prizes and communicate with everyone.

The race is Sunday, August 22nd and it starts promptly at 18:00 Eve time.  Sometime late next week we will announce the general direction of the race and I will recommend a staging system for you, which won't be far from the starting line.  This is so you have time to get where you need to be.  The actual starting line won't be announced until 17:00 on Sunday and the finish line won't be announced until the start of the race.

We're getting down to the wire.  Anyone that is still interested in sponsoring a portion of the race or helping to contribute prizes is encouraged to do so, just write me an email at  Anyone who contacted me and I haven't gotten back to you, please forgive me and re-send your request.  Much appreciated.  It has been kind of nuts.

As we all know, sometimes you feel like a nut and sometimes you don't.
