We will view the race virtually this year, but all other aspects of the race are the same. Stay tuned for information on how to watch the race live. Only adult leaders running the race will be permitted inside on race day.
Car Construction Rules:
All cars must meet the below requirements at check-in inspection to qualify for the race. If a car does not pass the initial inspection, time will be given within the official weigh-in period to make adjustments. After final approval, cars will not be reinspected unless the car is damaged in handling or in a race.
Name your car. You will be asked at check-in to supply a name for your car.
Check-in your car. A contactless check-in will occur on Saturday, March 6 at Holy Cross Lutheran Church (4622 S Lamar Blvd, Austin, TX 78745) from 3-5 pm. Participants do not need to be present to check-in a car, but all race entries must be received by the end of check-in. To ensure social distancing, please sign-up for a check-in time and drop off at that time, and please wear a mask to check-in. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/13_s9QOVWPYV_PQOK3mS_rY1nDdx_sQIMpd7wj5CRgAY/edit?usp=sharing
