WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT RACING DIVISIONS?

Greater Pittsburgh Soapbox Derby

Stock Division: The Stock division is for racers age 7-13 years old. Stock cars can accommodate a racer up to (Approximately) 5'3" tall and 125 pounds. The Stock car, a lean-forward design, is sold as a kit which includes everything needed for racing with the exception of Z-Glas racing wheels and weights. Because painting is not permitted on the Stock car shell, drivers have their choice of purchasing one of three colored shells: red, white or blue. Builders should allow 4-6 hours to assemble their Stock division car.

Super Stock Division: The Super Stock division is designed for racers age 10-21 years old. Super Stock cars can accommodate a larger racer up to (Approximately) 6'0" tall and 150 pounds. The Super Stock, a lean-forward designed car, is also sold as a kit which includes everything needed for racing with the exception of Z-Glas racing wheels and weights. Builders should allow 4-6 hours to assemble their Super Stock division car.

Masters Division: The Masters division (also known as Scottie) is for racers age 10-21 years old and is driven by the more experienced drivers. Masters cars can accommodate a child up to (Approximately) 6'0" tall and 160 pounds. Because of the lay-down (enclosed) design of the Masters car, small drivers are also competitive in this division.

Have a fun building experience and good luck!
