Pinewood Derby

The Pinewood Derby is one of the most popular events in Cub Scouting. Every year more than a million boys and parents team up to carve, decorate, weigh, adjust, fret over, and finally race a Pinewood Derby car. 

The first Pinewood Derby was held in 1953 by Cub Scout Pack 280 of Manhattan Beach, California, and as of 1991, more than 81 million Pinewood Derby model car kits have been sold. The purpose of the Pinewood Derby is to help the Cub Scout build a team relationship with their parent or helper, experience the sense of accomplishment and the excitement of competition, learn good sportsmanship, and to have fun.

Participation

Open to all Cub Scouts, Tiger Scouts, parents and leaders.

A Scoutís primary goal in Pinewood Derby should be to:

Work together with a parent on a joint project
Acquire a healthy attitude about competition and sportsmanship
Become more proficient at woodworking
Survive the experience with all ten fingers
 

Registration and Inspection

All cars must pass inspection to qualify for the race. Each car must pass inspection by the race officials before it will be allowed to compete. The officials have the right to disqualify those cars that do not meet specifications. Cars not passing inspection for minor infractions, i.e., weight, wheel width, loose body trim, will have an opportunity for re-inspection 10 minutes before close of registration.

Officials decisions are final. The car will be impounded when registered until the races are complete. After being impounded, repairs will be limited to replacement of axles/wheels that are broken/lost during the race. Any other piece of the car that is
broken/lost during the race can not be replaced.
