Experience the thrill of racing down the hill in front of the Downtown Y! Kids and “kids at heart” are all invited to participate.

3 Divisions:

Super Stock- Kids ages 7-12- These kids will learn before the races in a practice session to drive and how to FLY down the hill!

Super Kids- Special Needs kids- These kids will be in one of our specially designed cars that have a driver, and one of the kids gets to ride along and experience the joy of racing down the hill!
