Oswegoland Optimist Club


#1 Craft your Pumpkin Race Car using a single pumpkin.

#2 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. Spice up your racer with style.

#3 You may not attach your pumpkin onto a pre-fabricated chassis of any kind (office chair, skateboard, stroller, Tonka truck, etc., etc…)


#5 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. etc. See Rule #7.

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

RULE #7 NO CHEATING. Feel great about being honest and fair. Don’t be tempted to be a Cheater Pumpkin. Use the honor system and obey the spirit of these rules. Our Race Officials have a keen eye and Cheater Pumpkins will be subject to public destruction by the Mallet-O-Justice!!
