For it's 40th birthday celebration, SPACES will set the stage of Cleveland's most creative competition. The Artwood Deby track is approximately 36 feet long, with a 4-foot vertiginous drop. Participants provide the fastest, wackiest, and most outrageous pinewood derby cars to race down the track, powered by gravity alone. Guest announcers will call the races, while cameras capture photo finishes. All participants will have the chance to display their cars at SPACES before the races.

Once the results are tallied, trophies are awarded for Fastest, Corniest, Hottest Mess, and Best in Show. Trophies return each year with the artistic addition by the previous year's winner.
