Logistically, there are a couple of changes this year.

  • As of right now, only 1 parent/guardian will be allowed to attend the race with their son. Depending on conditions, this may be expanded as we get closer to the race.
  • There won’t be any chairs set up, so spectators for the races will stand this year (including the scouts who are not racing in a heat).
  • There will not be any food or drink served this year
    Everyone will need to use a mask indoors, and social distancing protocols followed

Scouts will need to check in their cars on Friday, May 7th between 7 PM – 9 PM in the auditorium. This is the same check-in process as prior years (car weighed, etc.).


“You know mom, this isn’t really a race car. It’s more of a stunt car.”

Pinewood Derby Tips

Please don’t forget to follow the rules and practice good sportsmanship!  Please don’t modify the wheels!  Most stickers, paints and supplies can be purchased at Michael’s Crafts near the mall.  Some more exotic design elements, lead and tungsten weights can be found on the web.
