Sunday, Sunday, Sunday! See imagination at play in the decorations gracing the chassis of handmade race cars! See gravity at play as the 6- to 12-year-old drivers hurtle down an inclined slope and achieve velocities of up to 10 mph! See human nature at play as everyone enjoys a very good time sitting on hay bales, eating barbecue and watching a soapbox derby on a springtime afternoon!
Forty-five cars have registered for the races and about half of those ran last year, race organizer and Woodside resident Bruce Carlsmith told the Almanac.
The "build days" were two Saturdays in April. In decorating their plywood cars, racers were encouraged to use their imaginations. "It doesn't even have to be car," an official statement said. "Spaceships, animals and other ideas are welcome!"
Racers will compete in two age groups, with prizes for the fastest car and the coolest car. The race is sponsored by the Woodside Recreation Committee.
