Description

Pinewood derby? How about a BRICK-BUILT derby!

Build a pinewood-derby style car using LEGO bricks and bring it to race on Sunday, March 11th at 11am!

The track will be a standard BSA (Boy Scouts of America) type track where the cars will straddle the lane marker to stay in-lane. A minimum of 1 plate + 1 tile clearance is needed to ride above this lane marker, so build accordingly!

Entrants must have purchased a General Admission or Full Access pass to register for the Nebraska Brick Days convention: race entry is $5 for General Admission ticket-holders, free for Full Access registrants.


Build Rules:

- All cars must be built from 100% LEGO parts except for one (1) authorized weight piece allowed, which must be visible or easily accessible for inspection (zinc weight pieces will be available for purchase from HobbyTown Lincoln)

-The front of the car may not stick out past the starting mechanism, which will be in the middle of the lane.
-Wheels must be a minimum of 4 studs apart (no LEGO part restrictions on wheel type)
-All cars must be built with a flat surface for placement of a penny-sized sticker.
-NO LUBRICANTS OF ANY KIND

Size limits:

-Width: 8 studs maximum from outside wheel to outside wheel
-Length: 12 studs maximum from front to back
-Height: maximum of 10 bricks tall


LEGO Derby Rules:

Racing will begin Sunday May 11 th at 11:00 am.

All cars must be checked in for inspection at 10am, and will be held at the check-in table until racing is completed. Cars will race head-to- head in a double-elimination style tournament, with a second-chance bracket to race against the top car in the winners' bracket.

LEGO Built Awards will be distributed to the champion and to the runner up!
