Council Pinewood Derby 2024

Event Details

Council Pinewood Derby - Celebrating 71 years of pinewood car racing!

Sponsored by the generosity of WWT Raceway Gives

For all Cub Scouts, and a league for Scouts BSA and Venturing to compete!    Don't miss this grand time!  

The Pinewood Derby is one of the highlights of a Cub Scout's year and great memories for older Scouts.  This event will bring youth from across the council to have some fun as they race their cars to see who has the fastest one.  

This event is open to ALL Cub Scouts in the Council, regardless of a Scout's placement at their home Pack's or District race.

More details on the event are found in the attachments with race rules, heat information, and design contest. 

The Race Rules are just that, rules and not suggestions.  Please review them. Cars will be inspected at check in and a pit area will be available if any modifications need to be made on the cars to make them permissable for the track.  
Fee is only $5 per car to enter, all spectators are free.  Please register by February 23.   Youth under 18 must be in the care of a responsible adult.

9:00 am to 1 pm, Scouts will compete by rank in Cub Scouts, and Scouts BSA and Venturing will have a separate competition.
