I'm proud to announce that the 2010 Bluegrass Nationals Pinewood Derby Race is back for another year !! The 2010 BGN will be held in beautiful Somerset, Kentucky at "The Center". The BGN website has been updated with all the important information on this years race. Many Sponsors have already stepped up and offered their support for this years race with even more to be announced. I would like to take this opportunity to invite all of you to attend this event. I am working hard to make this years event even better than the previous years. If you have any questions regarding this years BGN, Please do not hesitate to post them or drop me an e-mail or pm. Thank you for all the past and current support and help that so many of you have given. I hope to see all of you at the 2010 BGN!!
Just wanted to give everyone a quick update on the 2010 BGN. We are about 4 months out from the race and things are starting to come together real nice. The sponsor list for the 2010 BGN is continuing to grow. You can check out the BGN website for a complete list of this years sponsors. I'm also getting pm's and e-mails from racers from all across the country inquiring about the race. I'm shocked at how many families are planning their vacations around the BGN. I so much appreciate all the support from everyone. I'm definitely looking forward to a fun filled weekend of racing and fellowship. I want to address a few general questions I have received lately from racers, so here it goes...
Will there be a track/timer given away again this year at the BGN ?
YES, Best Track is back on board with us again this year and will be donating a Best Track and Champ Timer to be given away at the race Sunday.
Do I have to be there to win the track/timer ?
No, but only live racers are eligible to enter to win the track/timer. Since the race is 2 days this year and some people will not be there both days, if your name gets drawn and you are not present, you will notified of your win and I will make sure the gift certificates (redeemable for the track/timer) get sent to you.
Will there be a Mills Craft race this year ?
I still haven't heard back from Mills Craft. Hopefully they will come on board for the 2010 BGN. I will let everyone know asap.
Do the youth divisions get trophies also ?
Yes, Pure Stock, Stock, Limited and Modified all have a youth divisions. The top 3 adults and top 3 youths in those divisions will receive a trophy courtesy of Derby Worx.
Can I send my cars in prior to the race and have them inspected and ready to go when I get there ?
Absolutely, just contact me for shipping info.
Do I have to pay my entry fees when I pre-register ?
No, I actually prefer that you do not. Please wait until after your car(s) have been through and passed inspection to pay the entry fees.
Thanks again for the continued support of the BGN. If you have any questions about this years race or need any information, PLEASE do not hesitate to contact me here on the forum or through e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
