Ladies & Gentlemen, Start Your Engines!

Have fun designing and building your racing cars over the summer. You are invited to participate in the James J. Hill Days Coaster Cart Derby. Don’t miss this family event using Gravity propelled vehicles.

The Wayzata Chamber of Commerce Coaster Cart Derby is intended solely as an enjoyment event for youth (6 to 14 year olds), family, and spectators. The event is not sanctioned by any recognized competition agency. A parent or guardian must directly supervise the design and construction of the vehicle, and guide and train any driver of a vehicle to ensure safe equipment and use of it. The drivers must wear a helmet which will adequately protect them. Refer to the official rules.

See you at the races for a lot of old fashioned fun and ingenuity. Show your pride — wear your Scout uniform or Scout T-Shirt!

REGISTRATION is now available. Cost is $22 / driver. Please be sure to read the Rules and Regulations, available at
