Mt. Prospect, IL (PRWEB) December 05, 2012
Beginning in January, Dremel and Lowe’s will once again team up to deliver a series of in-store clinics to help families build the ultimate pinewood race car. During select Saturdays in January and February, families can learn about the best tools and design techniques to build a fast pinewood car at Dremel and Lowe’s Pinewood Derby® Days clinics in Lowe’s stores nationwide.
This year’s clinics will be held on Jan. 5, Jan. 19, Feb. 2 and Feb. 16 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at all Lowe’s locations nationwide. Customers are encouraged to call their local stores to confirm timing and dates of clinics. In addition to gaining new knowledge of car design tips and tricks, clinic participants will receive an official race badge patch and a coupon for 10 percent off their entire purchase should they buy any Dremel tools, accessories and attachments.
“Pinewood Derby races are a great way to get your hands dirty and spend quality time with family,” said David Vaughn, Lowe’s vice president of merchandising for tools. “We are thrilled to offer for the eighth consecutive year our Derby Days clinics to help both new and seasoned racers build their ultimate race car.”
Race fans are invited to visit http://www.DremelDerby.com, where they can enter their final Pinewood Derby® car design from Jan. 1 to March 1 for a chance to win a complete Dremel Pinewood Derby® Rotary Tool Kit and be named the new Dremel and Lowe’s Pinewood Derby Days champion. The winner will also have his or her design displayed in Lowe’s stores during the Dremel Pinewood®Derby Days 2014 season.

As the 2012 Dremel Pinewood Derby Days Design Contest Winner, Scott Segler will have his car featured in Lowe’s stores on the Derby Days endcap as well as on http://www.DremelDerby.com. Segler’s design of his metallic blue Grand Prix Talbot-Lago T26C with sleek exhaust tail pipes was inspired by the actual model that was successful in the 1940 Derby style races.
