Pinecar Derby

The pinewood derby is a racing event. Scouts, with the help of parents, build their own cars from wood, usually from kits containing a block of pine, plastic wheels, and metal axles. With the popularity of the pinewood derby, other organizations have developed similar events, and a small industry has developed to provide tracks, timers, scales, trophies, ribbons, and other products. Similar Cub Scouting events include the rain gutter regatta with boats and the space derby using rubber band-powered rockets.The first pinewood derby was held on May 15, 1953 at the Scout House in Manhattan Beach, California by Cub Scout Pack 280C (the present Pack 713. The concept was created by the Pack's Cub master Don Murphy, and sponsored by the Management Club at North American Aviation.
