Important Note

The most important thing about the Pinewood Derby is for it to be fun for the Scouts. Each year, Cub Scouts come up with great cars and fun designs. Building a derby car with your Scout is a great way teach them how to safely use hand tools and is a fun project.  Ultimately, this is a great opportunity for each of our scouts to showcase their skills and imaginations and, at the same time, an opportunity for you and your child to work as a team. There will be lots of awards for the fast cars. However, having fun and teaching good sportsmanship are the most important parts of the Pinewood Derby. 

If you have fun, you’ve already won!

Check-in/weigh-in begin at 9:30 am and end at 10:50 with a pit area for last minute adjustments and repairs. There will be a concession stand available where the racers may use their drivers license to "purchase" food and drink items as allotted.  For non-scouts, all items are available for purchase. We will start opening ceremonies at 11 am with races to follow! Do not miss the registration time as we CAN NOT add in a racer after the start of the races.


Trophies will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd & 3rd place winners in each rank. The Pinewood Derby racing software averages the fastest three of your four race times, and these times will be used to determine how your Scout places in his rank.
