We’ve added a signature event this year – the Wind-Up-Toy Race. We’ve got hoppers, walkers, rollers, and jumpers. And they will all race in a showdown of massive proportions. Ten toys will compete on a regulation track of 18 inches – no holds barred.
You can participate by Sponsoring a Toy of betting on the race. More info below:
Sponsor a Toy – Become a Jockey For a cost of $100 – you can sponsor one of ten toys. What you get: you get to select your toy from the list below and give it a unique name. You have 24 toys to choose from. In addition, you get to select a representative to be your jockey who will wind it up and race it on the day of the tailgate. This person can also have a unique name that will be publicized worldwide on the internet and at our event. Your name and logo will appear on the web site and the race banner.
NOTE: on race-day, you will only get to practice for 15 minutes prior to the event and we advise you to keep your practice secret (sometimes your these toys have quirks – it may go sideways, fast, or slow, or tips over, and some benefit from only being wound up ¾ instead of all the way, etc.). The jockey needs to figure this out in a short period of time and aim the toy properly.
Race rules We only have a few:
Toys must start behind the line.
Jockey’s cannot touch their toy once the race starts.
No touching or pounding the table.
First toy across the line wins (or the toy that ends up closest to the finish line if no toy crosses the line).
If a toy falls off the table it is disqualified.
There will be ten Wind-Up-Toys in the race – please sponsor a Toy. Just contact us and we'll add you to the field of racing toys (call David at 412-370-5374 to sponsor a Toy). HURRY - there are only ten spots and toy selection is on a first come, first serve basis.
Bet on the Race This is where the action happens. Just bet on the Toy you think will win. Select one of ten to win. We’re asking for $10 minimum bets. Post –time will be 5 minutes prior to the race.
