Race Day Information


Every car will race once in each lane. We will throw out the slowest race time and average the remaining race times for each car. The cars with the resulting fastest average time will be the winner. We will use computerized timing equipment and software to manage race results, but the Race Officials decisions will be final.


Only the volunteer Pit Crew will be allowed to handle the cars during the races. Cars will be selected randomly and run based on the total number of entrants. All cars must meet the assigned race rules as listed in this document. In the event of a disparity or concern, the Race Officials decision will be final. 

All cars will be weighed on the same scale during registration. Cars must weigh no more than 5.0 oz

on the official race scale. The Race Officials have the final say on car eligibility.


We will be presenting these awards for this year’s Pinewood Derby, so keep these in mind when designing your car.


Please review the following statement with your Scout: 

In every competition there are winners and losers. You accept this when you choose to compete. There may be times when you win and feel happy, and times when you lose and feel unhappy. Winning a car race does not make you a good Scout. A good Scout does not brag or gloat when they win, and they do not act jealous or bitter when they lose. A good Scout must be able to say, “I did my best” and be proud of their effort. After all, this is the “fun” part of Cub Scouts, enjoy it!
