Skateboards, longboards, slalom boards, soapbox derby cars, motor-less karts, pedal-less bicycles, gravity bikes, roller skates, in-line skates, dirtsurfers, scooters, wagons, butt boards, street luge, office chair, shopping cart, dolly, if it has wheels and you can roll it down a hill, you can race it! Home built machines are encouraged, but please keep in mind your own safety, the safety of other riders, and the safety of any possible onlookers.

Race courses will be fast and will have turns so if you can not steer it or stop/slow it, you will get hurt and possibley hurt other riders and onlookers. The minimum protective gear including helmet, knee pads, helmet pads, and gloves are necessary. These races are not organized or sanctioned. There are no trophies, only bragging rights and new scars. This is not for the sqeamish. Onlookers are encouraged to come out. Number of racers per heat and who/what races against who/what will be determined on race day.
