HI,  I'm in Cub Scouts Pack 272.

Every year we have a pinewood derby car race.  A pinewood derby car kit has a block of wood, metal nail axles and 4 plastic wheels.

There are rules for the car race.  The rules come in the box with your car.  Some Packs have special rules too, be sure to ask.  Scouts can't do some things to their cars because of the rules.  Scouts can cut, sand and paint their cars.

The race is on a 32' long track with three or more lanes.  First car to the end of the track wins the race.  Here is the test track we built:
