The local derby began in 1992 in Lyons, Ga. More than 60 drivers compete in all divisions: Stock Division (ages 7-13), Super Stock Division (ages 10-17), Master’s Division (ages 10-20) and Super Kids (physically and mentally challenged). The winners from each division are presented with a champion jacket and a $1,000 check to help with expenses for traveling to Akron, Ohio, to compete in the World Championship Race. Run What You Brung is held the Friday evening before the race. Lyons has brought home six World Championships in the past two years. Create your own gravity-powered vehicle and race down derby hill in "Run What You Brung" Friday evening. Fun for the adults too!
