1. CRAFT YOUR PUMPKIN

Craft your Pumpkin Race Car using a single pumpkin. Spice up your racer with style.

2. ATTACH WHEELS

Insert a minimum of two independent axles through your pumpkin and attach wheels to the axles. The axles must go through the wheels. No caster wheels.

3. NO ATTACHMENTS

You may not attach your pumpkin onto a chassis of any kind (office chair, skateboard, stroller, Tonka truck, etc...)

4. NO EXPLOSIVES OR PYROTECHNICS

Again...NO EXPLOSIVES or PYROTECHNICS!

5. NO PUSHING YOUR RACER

No pushing or "helping" your Pumpkin Racer on the starting line. No last minute shove, the hidden thumb flick, the early release, the remote control chassis, etc. See Rule #7.

6. NO CHASING YOUR RACER

No chasing your pumpkin down the track to make it go straight.

7. NO CHEATING

NO CHEATING! Feel great about being honest and fair. Don't be tempted to be a Cheater Pumpkin. Our Race Officials have a keen eye and Cheater Pumpkins will be subject to public destruction by the Mallet-O-Justice!!
