As racers began to arrive, they reported to inspection to have their cars reviewed and weighed.  Youth cars had a weight limit of 300 lbs while Adult cars had a limit of 400 lbs.  After inspection, each racer was given the opportunity to take their car for a test run down the Haynes Street hill.  Repairs and adjustments were made as axles buckled and wheels departed on their way down the hill.  Fortunately, all of the drivers remained uninjured.
