Jax Cracker Race
February 7, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm$18
Big How Mighty Timucuan Federation!
The time has come for our Annual Jax Cracker 500 Race. The track will be open Wed thru Friday of this week for Open Practice from 4pm – 9pm at the Classic Lighting Warehouse. There are no assigned track monitors, so please do not let the little braves and princesses bump into the track as the optics are very sensitive and can be knocked out of alignment. This will cause the clock not to work. Be very cautious, please! Control the kids if they will be up in the warehouse and around the track.
It is recommended to take a flashlight with you if you go up after dark just in case the lights haven’t been turned on yet. Instructions for turning on the lights are located next to the main breaker box adjacent to the warehouse bathrooms. The man door by the dumpster will be open along with the rollup doors in the warehouse. If you are last out, turn out the lights and make sure the doors are closed.
For the day of the event, please bring chairs this year. We will not be able to have any bleachers set up due to pallets not being available.
We have a VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY for this event. We need help with set up, break down, and administering the race as it is being run. If you can help, please reply by email or phone.

Good Luck Racers!
Gentlemen, start your engines!!! Get ready for what is probably the most electrifying and exciting federation event of the year. The time for the Annual Jax Cracker Race is at hand. This is our third year running the smaller racer, and based on the last two years’ results, the field is wide open and we should expect a lot of competitive racing from throughout the Federation, rookies included. So sign up now to give you and your Native Son or Daughter plenty of time to prepare for the greatest race in Jacksonville!
Awards will be given out for “best in show” and “fastest racer”. Preference will be given for cars that are kid creations. When signing up, the charge is 18.00 per race car. Dads do not need to pay, just pay per child. Updated Jax Cracker Rules of the Race can be found under the “Resources” tab of our website.
We will be doing two car distributions. The first distribution date will be announced shortly when the shipment arrives. The second distribution will occur at January’s Fed meeting. Please sign up quickly for this event to afford your children plenty of time to prepare. Remember, this is a Patch Event. See you at the races! BIG HOW!
