Inspection & Rules

ALL RULES WILL BE ENFORCED!
All cars must be registered and pass inspection 20 minutes prior to their race.

The 2020 Race rules have received a format change with additional illustrations and clarifications.  Notable rule clarifications on axle and wheel alignment (rule 29), wheel thickness (rule 30) and section V. Outlaw Mod Class.  The spirit of the Outlaw Mod Class is to push the limits of modification with an official pinewood derby car kit.  Max weight of a non-Outlaw class is still 5.00oz, where the precision of the weight scales will be set to .01 (hundredths place), therefore a car weighing 5.009 oz is considered as the legal weight of 5.00 oz.
