Saint Arnold Brewing Company says
You’ve probably seen our hand painted Art Cars driving around Houston, and we hope you’ve enjoyed some Art Car IPA over the past year and a half. We certainly have. In April, we’re celebrating our love of Art Cars and gearing up for the annual Art Car Parade by shrinking the cars down for our first Art Car Pinewood Derby at the brewery. The winner will earn two VIPit tickets to watch the Art Car Parade with the Saint Arnold Brew Crew.

If you think you can build the best Pinewood Derby Art Car, here’s how to enter: For $25, you’ll get the official building kit plus two beers at our kit pickup night on Friday, March 24, 5:00 – 10:00 PM. You’ll get two more beers on race night, Friday, April 7 – the night before the Art Car Parade. Racing will start at 7:00 PM that evening. Tickets can be purchased here:

While speed is your goal, we’ll also be looking for creativity. These are mini Art Cars after all. The best designed car will receive fabulous Saint Arnold prizes.

Here are the official rules:
The car must have been made during the current year (the year in which the derby is held).
The width of the car shall not exceed 2-1/4 inches.
The length of the car shall not exceed 7 inches.
The weight of the car shall not exceed 5 ounces.
Axles, wheels, and body wood shall be as provided in the kit.
Wheel bearings, washers, and bushings are prohibited.
The car shall not ride on any kind or type of springs.
Any details added must be within length, width, and weight limits.
The car must be freewheeling, with no starting devices.
No loose materials of any kind (such as lead shot) are allowed in the car.
The official number must be clearly marked or visible on both sides of the car.
