Race Day
The Derby was held at the Godwin Elementary School in Princeton, Texas on Saturday, March 7th.  Weigh-ins was Friday night and racing started at 9:30 am.

“Be Fast… or Look Good Trying”

The pinewood derby is one of the most popular and successful family activities in Cub Scouting. Pinewood derby cars are small wooden models that Cub Scouts make with help from their families. Then they race the cars in competition. The cars are powered by gravity and run down a track. Every boy can design and build his own “grand prix” car to enter in the race.
 

Prizes and Recognition
The Derby is about doing one’s best and having fun, so all child participants were recognized.  
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 nine pieces MUST be used before the car can race. The kits are sold at the local Scout Shop or online.   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.
Results are In!
