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.

Proceeds from the races will benefit SEMA Cares charities, including Childhelp, Victory Junction and the Austin Hatcher Foundation.

The SEMA Installation & Gala is scheduled for Friday, July 26, at the Anaheim Marriott, Anaheim, California.
