Rock Candy 500

April 9, River Market Pavilion

The stars aligned last week at the River Market Pavilion for the Rock Candy 500. Just the right number of cars for our ultra-complicated double-elimination bracket system showed up. All the surprising amount of technology associated with the track worked. The torrential rains waited until after we were finished. No one got impaled by our awesome, but dangerous trophies (donated, generously, by Robert Roling of Custom Royale). Those who stuck around post-race got free beer. It was magical.

We're already scheming about next year's derby. Stay tuned.

 

Hats off to the winners:

Best of Show: Caleb Horne

Fastest: Brooks Bishop

Best Design: Noah Vining

Best Kids: Gabe Bertram

Best Paint: Ron Arra
