Ready, Set, Race! Join Us 4/1 for Derby Day

Hello All!

We are very excited to invite you to the Colt Barker Memorial Derby Day hosted by Boys Ministry and will be held on April 1, 2023 at the Appalachian Conference campgrounds gym in Dublin, VA. Everyone is welcome; it’s an exciting time for kids and adults of all ages! This will be a great time exploring one of Boys Ministry’s favorite event.

Check-In, pit time, and weigh-in will be from 8:00 – 9:30 am. Racing will begin at 10:00 am. The fee is $10.00 registration for each participant for the first car. There will be a fee of $2.00 for a second car. Registration forms are attached. Please have them filled out before you arrive so that you can shorten the line!

We will race five divisions for the boys who have built a new car: Pre-K, K-2nd grade, 3rd-5th grade, 6th-8th grade, and 9th-12th grade. We will have a division for the Girls, Adults (new cars only) and an Open Division which will include anyone with an additional car new or old. As always there will be a Best-of-Show award. And we are happy to be able to include the Modified Division (open to all racers). Refer to the accompanying documents for guidelines regarding requirements/rules for the cars.

Supplies can be ordered through:

  • Life Spring Recourses: 1-800-541-1376 Item Number 4710040
  • Healthy Church online store:
  • For this year’s race kits purchased from Hobby Lobby, Lowes, Michaels Craft Store or anywhere kits are sold will be allowed to race

Each racer will receive a patch.

Food and refreshments may be available for sale, as a fund-raiser for the group providing refreshments.

Once again, we are going to raise money for missions by having an offering. Jesus gave us The Great Commission, so we need to do our part! Please come join us for this fun-filled day! If there are any questions, please call us!
