The Great Carbondale Pumpkin Race is a chance to have fun and raise money for a local charity by designing, building, and racing your very own Pumpkin Racer! Build the fastest racer you can, or go nuts with the most original design you can think of! There is a $100 grand prize, but most people just race for the fun of it. Remember, cheaters never win (see the Official Rules below)!
