Grand Junction Derby drivers don’t race their masterpieces until Oct. 1, but registration for the yearly event is now open.
The Westfield Parks and Recreation Dept. announced it is now accepting applications until Sept. 23, as well as offering resources for teams to build their own derby car.
“Building a derby car from scratch can be a fun way to spend time with your family and friends and really create a sense of accomplishment when completed,” Parks Director Melody Jones stated.
The derby encourages families, businesses and nonprofits to all compete by entering their cars this year.
Registration guarantees a spot for the car and pit crew if the car meets regulations.
As always, the derby will take place at the intersection of Main and Union streets. The festival will include vendors and music.
A new feature with Janus Developmental Services, Janus at the Junction, will take place.
IndyCar Driver Conor Daly and his father, former driver Derek Daly will make an appearance at the event, as well.
