About the Pine Car Grand Prix
For more than 65 years, boys have turned a block of pine wood, four plastic tires and metal axles, into race cars – some fast, some not so fast.
For many adult men, their favorite memory was the pine car derby racing. The Brotherhood 500 Pine Car Grand Prix gives adult participants the opportunity to relive the fun and excitement of building their own cars and racing them on real pine car race tracks. They get a chance to build the car they wish they had years ago as a youth – maybe even settle some scores.
But most of all, this will be a fun event in a friendly atmosphere with friends and coworkers while enjoying craft beers and great food.
Proceeds from this event will support improvements to OA Ceremonial Circles at Camp Mack and Camp Bashore.

Trophies Awarded
Impressive trophies will be awarded for the Fastest, Slowest, Best Design, Best Corporate signage, and additional categories.

There are two basic racing divisions
Stock Car – Stock Cars will follow the traditional rules and requirements for the Pinewood Car racing.
Outlaw – The Outlaw division cars must meet three basic rules: must fit on the track, must be gravity propelled, cannot cause any harm.
