73rd Annual Go-Cart Derby


The Greenpoint Annual Go-Cart Derby has been a regular Greenpoint outing since around 1922. (Ironically, the year of the first Our Gang short). It consists of young boys of ages 10 to 15 riding purchased or handmade go-carts on a set neighborhood course; the winner receiving a trophy and, at least at the 73rd Annual race, a cash prize given by AJ Ferguson. The He-Man Woman-Haters Club has won it for several years with their store-bought go-cart, The Blur. Spanky McFarland, Alfalfa Switzer, Waldo, Butch and The Woim are the only known drivers. Darla Hood is possibly its first female participant.
