Valve Cover Racing: Sign up for the valve cover races!
Practice all day until noon – then race against other guests.
What’s a valve cover race?
Think Pine Wood derby for automotive enthusiasts. Take your favorite valve cover, add wheels, and go racing. Is a Buick straight 8 valve cover faster than a Chevy, Studebaker, Ford, Chrysler or flat head side cover? Bring yours to the Car Show and find out. If you do not have a valve cover to race, we have valve covers available to borrow! Ladies and Gentlemen, “START – YOUR -GRAVITY!!”
