Welcome, Race Fans To run a Cubmobile race, you need little more than a gently sloping, wide and unobstructed racecourse. Coverstone uses a block-long stretch of Indiana Avenue in Warsaw, Ind.; Wieters uses a parking-garage ramp at the Santa Maria Town Center. Of course, wherever you race,


you must get permission to close the course and then make it as safe as possible. Coverstone lines the center of his two-lane course with hay bales so racers don’t run into each other. Cement curbs keep racers from veering onto sidewalks. Wieters


uses borrowed landscaping timbers to slow down off-course racers. “If they’re going fast, they might go over it with one set of wheels, but the other set will never go over it,” he says. What about the end of the course?


Wieters’ course uses hay bales; Coverstone’s has extra room for boys to slow down. “We’ve got volunteers at the finish line,” he says. “As soon as boys cross that finish line, they’re hol- lering, ‘Brake!’ ” Two boys race side by side, but


they don’t compete against each other since they could be from different weight classes. In Coverstone’s district,


boys race twice, once in each lane. “Your total time is your total time,” he says. Wieters’ district gives boys a prac- tice run and three races that count for time. “We actually collect times for all four races, drop the slowest time and add up the other three,” he says. How accurate is the timing?


Coverstone uses an electronic timing system; Wieters relies on volunteers with stopwatches. “We’ve only ever had to redo one heat, so we think that’s pretty good,” Wieters says. And even if you have to redo a


heat, few boys would complain about taking another ride in a Cubmobile. ¿
