All right everyone... I have been very busy behind the scenes... We have some amazing things in store for this years event. I really hope many of you are a part of this year's Best Pinewood Derby Show on the planet. There are some exciting new changes as we roll out this year's event. Registration is Live Now - and for those entering in the Non-Pro Divisions we will be doing a special prize give away out of the first 100 entrants. Do not miss your chance to win.... ummm a Track
To begin with this is a flagship year for us as we had to fly solo with out the direct involvement of our Council, as the changes that the council wanted to make would have not contributed to the continued success of the event. So more now than ever we need your support in promoting and continuing to make this event something very special. The Greatest Scout Derby Race - open this year to both Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts. It is also going to be the Nationals for Pro Racing as it has for the last several years. We really want to ramp up numbers so spread the word to your local scouts both girl and cub scouts. For those of you that race on the Pro side of things - there is no other venue that you get to race your pro cars on a 6 lane track against the fastest in the country to be called Champion of Nationals.
