WEIGH-IN: Race day is right around the bend! The derby kicks off with a mandatory weigh-in on Friday night. Once cars are checked in, they will remain “quarantined” at the middle school. Weights and graphite will be available for last-minute adjustments; however, cars should be as close as possible to the 5-ounce maximum weight when Scouts arrive.
FAMILY RACE: This year, the pack is bringing back the family race! Moms, dads, brothers, sisters – all are invited to build cars of their own and race them on Friday night. Kits are under $5 and may be purchased at the Cleveland Scout Shop downtown or ordered online by clicking here.
RACE DAY: On Saturday, Scouts will vote for Most Awesome Car before racing in four heats; every car will race once in each of the track’s four lanes. Scouts will compete for 1st through 3rd place in their dens; 1st through 3rd place in the pack; and 1st through 3rd place for Most Awesome Car. Donuts, drinks, coffee, and some fruit will be for sale.
SETUP: Help is needed on Friday for setup, and on Saturday for Pit Crew, hospitality, and cleanup. Please visit the event SignUpGenius page.
