Race Day: May 18, 2016

We're probably even more excited than you are. The annual Stumptown 40 is a ton of work, but also a ton and a half of fun. We'll post a little more info as the day draws near, but this should get you started.

RACERS

  • Trials are held informally on race day from about 4:30 PM until 30 minutes before the races start. This is a good time to test your car on the track and make any adjustments before handing in your car.
  • Car Check-In starts at 5:30 PM. All cars must be checked in with volunteers by 6:30 PM. Sometimes there is a line to get into the venue, so early arrival is better.
  • Race Time is at 7 PM, and usually lasts 90 minutes or so. It's a single-elimination race for 64 cars, but we usually run a race a minute or quicker once we get going. Occasionally there are technical issues, but just get another beer and we'll get it done, Scout's honor.
  • Awards are at 9 PM-ish, usually a little sooner. Sometimes there is lengthy deliberation among judges over the Creative Car winner.
