Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines! Come to think of it, no engines allowed here. Get revved up for AIGA Jacksonville’s very first Pinewood Derby!
Bring out your best gravity-powered racing machine and pit it against everyone else in a thrilling 4-second drag race.
There will be awards for best concept and execution as voted by the crowd – but more importantly, we’ll award the fastest car (as voted on by the finish line) in a double-elimination bracket.
This is a family-friendly event, and all ages are welcome to participate.
Race car check in starts at 11 a.m. Races begin promptly at 12:00pm
Official race rules available here.
After the race, stick around for a very special screening of 2001’s “classic” racing thriller, The Fast and The Furious. Parents, the movie is rated PG-13 – there are a couple bad words and a lot of exploding cars.
No awards for most furious racer. Be nice.
