• You can NOT use an existing matchbox car track that your mom might have saved from your childhood, sorry! 😊
• You can NOT touch the car once it has started on the track
• The car must be free rolling on the track, no attachments to help move/pull the car
• Include the length (FT) of your track in your Facebook post
• Repeat/rebuild as many times as you want to get the best video!

Please share your video on the Formula SAE Facebook page under the ‘Day 7 Video Challenge: DIY Track’ post.
