Make The Jump
The Steel Girder Derby is open to all participants over the age of 55 who also participated in Pinewood Derbies when they were youngsters. This is specifically for people who thoroughly enjoyed their childhood racing experience.
The main body structure of participating racing vehicles must be made of steel. The width of the vehicle can not exceed 8 feet, length can not exceed 10 feet, weight can not exceed 6,000 lbs and height can not exceed 10 feet. The idea is to successfully jump from one building roof to another building roof.
Unfortunately for Homer Weldtacker, his chassis split in half as he left the starting building roof. Only half of his vehicle landed on the opposite roof.
