Derby Hill at Bush's Pasture Park - 890 Mission St SE, Salem, OR 97302

Bush Park offers free parking on site.We are planning on lunch for racers on site. Public bathroom facilities are available on site both Saturday and Sunday. There is plenty of natural shade in a grassy park setting to set up your own chairs, etc. so feel free to bring picnic supplies for your day camp. Dogs must be on a leash.

Open Format - that is racers will be bracketed/placed by their qualifying times in A, B or C Classes (depending on # of racers/need). Open Format includes all Pro, Am, Masters, Women and Junior division racers. Final results will be reported/allocated to coincide with each racer's ISSA (self-proclaimed) ranking history for point awards based on event finish results. Self-proclaimed Pro division racers should chose to ride the "A" course whenever a choice is available. Tight Slalom event will offer two courses - "A" and "B". The B Tight course option will offer a lesser degree of difficulty than the A course and will in turn rank a lower result for that racer in the overall standings for the event. All racers will run the same course for the single lane Giant Slalom event. Class division cutoffs will be determined prior to the race based on total # of entrants and details of the lane choice option will be addressed at the riders meeting.

Race Event #1 description: Hybrid Slalom. Dual lane/head-to-head/ramp start. Each person who pays an entry fee will get to race head to head, in either A, B, or C division, as determined by qualifying. The course will be as challenging as the lower divisions can handle. Any racer who DQs twice in qualifiers will race in the lowest placing. This is an Open race. Pro, Am, Masters, Women, Jr (17-) will race Open, compete against Open racers, and get their points/ placings based on their overall placing. Hybrid will run on Saturday morning.

Race Event #2 description: Tight Slalom Single lane/rampstart. Racers will choose A or B (Pro or Am) course. Two runs, best time counts. Any run on course A beats any run on course B. Ramp start for all A racers. Ramp or push start for B course. Tight will run on Saturday afternoon - following the Hybrid finals.

Race Event #3 description: Giant Slalom Single lane/ramp start.
All racers will run the same course. This road is a soap box derby hill. Giant slalom will be run on Sunday morning. Following the GS, there will be a bonus speed trap event - does not count for the overall or ISSA points. Racers can enter this event independent of the three main events for a separate entry fee.


Each registered racer will receive one event t-shirt included with their paid entry. Please be sure to register indicating your shirt size in advance. We must have this info so registering early will ensure your size shirt will be available.
