It's time again for our annual Pintwood Derby.  This year however, it will be bigger and better than ever.  We have invited all of the Brewers Cup participating breweries out, and they will be bringing some of their beers with them.  That's right, aside from the racing action, you'll be able to sample fantastic beers from local INDEPENDENT So. Cal breweries.    So far we have a great lineup of breweries participating, and the final list will be announced sometime soon. 

This years event will benefit the Arthritis Foundation, and will be taking place at the Bidwell Forum, in the plaza area between the Glendora library, and City Hall.  It is a fantastic venue for this event.  So, get your cars ready, and come out and race this year.
