Derby Workshops

There will be several opportunities to mold and shape the block of pinewood into a mean lean well-decorated racing machine.  

The scouts are not permitted to use power tools but they are encouraged to design the shape of their cars, sand them, and decorate them accordingly.  Parents are encouraged to assist the child but they should let the child do most of the work.

Pinewood Derby 2022 Workshop Dates:

Sunday, April 10 – 10am – 3pm

Saturday, April 23 – 10am – 3pm

Location: Sammons Garage

Sign Up for your session here:

Equal Ground

All entries in the derby will start with the “Official Grand Prix Pinewood Derby Kit” which includes the body, 4 axles, and 4 wheels.  

All Scouts will be given a PWD kit at the March 2022 Pack Meeting. They will also be available for pick up at a later date if you miss the meeting. Contact your Den Leader for more information.

Additional kits may be purchased from the Pack at the March Pack meeting or at the Pack Build Days.  Cars may not exceed 5 ounces in weight and must conform to certain size restrictions and specifications.  Decorating the cars are up to the imagination of the boys.  The complete set of rules will be available at the Derby Workshops.

Day Of Race Set Up

Official Rules and day of race info will be updated here by early April.

Cars will be impounded one week prior to the race day for proper race set up.

Due to our new track and software, we are re-vamping our impound and race day procedures. Please plan on having your cars completed and impounded by Monday, April 24, 2022

Check back soon for more updates.


This is where you will register your car before the race day.
