Downhill Derby

Summer at Park’s own “Indy 500” continues its yearly tradition at the “Lars Andersen Speedway” where everyone gets a turn at driving for a winning team, and everyone gets pit crew duty.  Team members work together on auto design, scale model building and full production of a speedster ready for an epic day at the races.  Events include downhill races, push-start trial runs, outdoor  games, and visiting an auto museum. Ladies and gentleman, start your engines!
