We're aiming to make pbskids's FF Battle 11 Presented by ENEOS and SPEC Clutch our most competitive and action-packed yet! Open to all front-engine, front-wheel drive vehicles, the format is time attack and the rules (listed below) promise to keep the playing field level whether you're a novice just getting used to the track or an experienced driver with plenty of laps under your belt.

We are not looking for full-blown race cars! Please keep in mind we're in search of real-world builds that are registered and fully functional for street duty.

Relying again on a 2-tier system that offers a run group for those who are newer to track events as well as a separate group that carries more experience, FF Battle 11 caters to all enthusiasts, and though we've seen a -heavy lineup in previous years, the event is open to everyone. At last year's FFB, we saw a few non-Honda entries that included a ST hatchback and a minivan!

Want to shake things up for 2019? Then register now at [email protected] and don't forget to include your year, make, model, list of modifications, preferred oil weight for your vehicle, and a picture or two. This is a space-limited event so it will fill up quickly, and once it does you're out of luck, so don't wait - register today!

Coverage? Yeah, there will be plenty via the pbskids network social media channels, website, and magazine, as well as a complete event video recap that will appear online and on pbskids's social networks.
