Pinewood Derby

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.
