The checkered flag will drop on Saturday, April 29th, for Wilmore’s third annual Coaster Car Derby.  This year’s derby was renamed “The Jim Edd Shearer Memorial Coaster Car Derby” in memory of the late local businessman and sports enthusiast, who generously helped with sponsorship at the two previous events.

Registration and check in starts at 11 a.m. with races taking place at 1:30 p.m. on East Main Street.  Participants, ages 7 to 17, will take a thrill ride down the hill of East Main Street which will be closed to other traffic.

There is no charge to participants; each participant will receive a free event tee shirt and compete for first, second and third place trophies.  Click to download the registration form and participation waiver form.  The forms may also be picked up at Wilmore City Hall.  Click here for the full press release.
