The Pinewood Drag Race season is officially open, providing members the opportunity to support children in need by sponsoring or building pinewood cars that will compete six-wide during the Pinewood races, held in conjunction with the SEMA Installation & Gala.
Hundreds of SEMA-member companies step up each year to sponsor pinewood cars, with 100% of the proceeds benefitting SEMA Cares charities.
SEMA members can race either a car or a truck in three classes: Build It For Me (BIFM), Stock and Unlimited. Members can either sponsor child-built cars and trucks in the Build-It-For-Me (BIFM) or Stock Class, or they can build and enter their own SEMA-supplied stock car or truck. Stock-Class racing usually garners the most entries with a typical speed of 3.2 seconds on a 50-ft. track. For hardcore speed enthusiasts, the Unlimited Class has only one rule—that one item from the stock kit be used. Cars in this class run sub-3 seconds, and many of the past top builders include some of the most recognized names in the industry.
The SEMA Installation & Gala is scheduled for Friday, July 26, at the Anaheim Marriott, Anaheim, California.
