Let's Get Ready to Roll!

A celebration of Hamster power

Move over NASCAR and race on over to one of the Bay Area PETCO stores for the retailer's first nationwide Hamster Ball Derby. Using hamster balls as their vehicles, hamsters will race down an eight-foot track in heats of four (hopefully, but not necessarily, toward the finish line). Heat winners will advance to subsequent rounds until a champion is determined in the final race. 

First-place winners will receive a Super Pet Dazzle Runabout Ball, a Hamtrac Circle Track, First Place Ribbon and, of course, bragging rights. Hamtrac Circle Tracks will also be awarded to second-, third- and fourth-place winners! All participants will receive a Certificate of Participation.

Participants will need to have their own hamsters and hamster balls to participate. Registration for the race is FREE. Spectators are encouraged to join in and cheer on their favorite competitors.
