At last year’s derby we had so many families hanging out after the race having a good time that we thought next year we’d add an “Outlaw Race” open to anyone. The only rules were that the car had to fit on the track, not damage it, and not interfere with any other racer.
We had a great turnout with all kinds of outlaw cars. We had brother racing sister, parents vs. kids, grandparents vs. grandkids, and Cubmaster vs. everyone! Everyone was very pleased with all the competition and are anxiously waiting for next year’s race.
I entered my car, the 10 ounce “Dragonator”. The car beat other cars that weighed 2 pounds or more!! And after all the years of helping my own son build cars, this was the first time we’d won anything. Needless to say my boy was a bit jealous of my Outlaw trophy which is proudly displayed in my game room.
For next year’s Outlaw race the gauntlet has been laid down and challenges made from all.
Thanks for putting on a great site with good information.
