Get ready for some FAST FOOD as the 18th Annual Zucchini 500 rolls into town!

The West Ward Market will provide everything needed – zucchini, wheels, axles, carving equipment and more — to turn the versatile veggie into a stylish, gravity-fueled racing machine ready to squash the competition on the Zucchini 500 track.
A Zuke 500 pit crew will be on hand to assist with car building. And NASCAR’s Peter Brohl will be on site to officiate the race.
Car building and test drives will take place from 3 – 5:30 p.m. Racing will start with the children’s division at 6 p.m. followed by the adult division. Children 16 and younger can compete in three categories: Sportscar, Midsize and Monster Truck. Adults can compete in the Adult Midsize heat following the children’s race. Trophies will be awarded to the fastest car in each category and there will be an additional prize for most creative car design. All participants will receive a souvenir racing medallion.
A Zucchini 500 photo station will be available for pictures of racers, friends and family in a zucchini car.
Please note: If you plan on building your car early in the day, be sure to bring a cooler and ice to keep it healthy form for the big race!
