The NPWDRL Pinewood Derby Championship Series came to a conclusion in spectacular fashion.
With a car count of over 160, it was the largest monthly pinewood derby event ever. The April pinewood derby event was sporting a triple points payoff and all class titles were on the line.
The day started off with an 81 car Street Stock pinewood derby field. The times were unreal and the racing was tight all the way to the 81st spot. There was no room for error. JB continued his mastery of the Street Stock Class to claim the top 3 spots of the April NPWDRL pinewood derby series finale. The victory also gave him the series championship claiming his spot as the fastest Street Stock pinewood derby racer in the USA. Gravity X came out of nowhere and claimed the Amateur title fighting off a large field of challengers.
Next came the Street Pro class which Quicktime Derby was looking to try and wrap up with another strong showing. The Street Pro class is one of the most challenging pinewood derby builds and the difficulty is sometimes very hard to master. Despite a strong field of competition, Quicktime Derby pulled out a wicked performance and claimed the Street Pro victory and pinewood derby Street Pro Championship Series title.
Up next was the Eliminator pinewood derby class. Spirit Racing was looking to place high and wrap up the series. It looked as if Spirit was going to win and out of nowhere came ZZ Racing to claim his first NPWDRL pinewood derby victory. The ironic thing was that ZZ’s car showed up with a fractured wheel and still performed like a champ. ZZ won the April event but Spirit claim the NPWDRL series Eliminator title.
Next it was time to race the high powered, fastest pinewood derby cars in the Unlimited class. The class has now become the Goatboy invitationals. In true fashion, Goatboy took the April race and the Series Title to stake his claim as the master of the bearing pinewood derby cars. Goatboy is the NPWDRL Unlimited series CHAMPION.
The last class of the day was the Street Rod pinewood derby class. It looked to be a heads up showdown between Stonecold Racing and Quicktime Derby to see who the champion would be. In a heated battle Stonecold hit the Nitro and screamed to a Street Rod victory and the NPWDRL Street Rod Series pinewood derby Championship.
Congratulations to all the winners and participants. This was by far the most successful league racing experience and it looks to be getting bigger each month. Up next, the Pinewood Derby National Championships!
