Learn the secrets of fast cars
If a car’s chasing you, you’ll definitely get tired. However, if you chase cars, you’ll get exhausted!
Calling all Pinewood Derby Car builders, racers, Cub Scouts, adults, and all race fans alike. The Council Pinewood Derby Championships are back! We look forward to seeing all the fantastic cars, zooming down the track at record speeds. The Council Pinewood Derby has three class divisions. Thus your vehicle will be competing against cars/ racers of the same age group. You may enter multiple cars into the race, each car will need its own registration. Each car will race multiple times on all lanes of the track, the race computer will then take the average time of each heat and calculate a time. The car with the best times in each division will be the winner.
