The derby is a family-friendly competition for children 7 to 17 years old and happens every year on the Saturday of Father’s Day weekend at Arrowhead Ranch. It is the largest race of its kind west of the Mississippi River.

The racers works with a mentor to build their car and practice racing on the track weeks prior to the event. This year, close to 100 cars are expected to compete.

Good luck to all the racers!
