The Pinewood Derby is wasted on the young. Kids comprehend nothing of the physics behind a lightning-fast race car, hewn from nothing but your hands, your dreams and your adult-supervision-required power tools.
This is why we need the Pinewood Classic. It’s a Pinewood Derby race just for grown-ups, which means tasty beer, sweet-ass prizes and speedy, well-designed wooden cars. The 75 racing spots are already claimed, but that doesn’t mean you can’t go day-drink, listen to live music from some of the valley's best-kept secrets, and cheer on the competitors as they showcase the second-most fun you can have with seven inches of pine.
The Pinewood Classic starts at 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 25, at Short Leash “Sit...Stay”, 110 East Roosevelt Street. Visit thepinewoodclassic.com for more..
