2021 Virtual Council Pinewood Derby


Do you think you have one of the top Pinewood Derby cars in your Pack? Do you want to test your Pinewood Derby car against cars from across Northern Star Scouting?  On behalf of Northern Star Scouting and the members of PWDRacingLeague.com, we would like to invite you to drop off your car at one of the six locations to participate in the Northern Star Scouting Virtual Pinewood Derby Championship. Anyone can participate! We are expecting over 200 cars from all over Northern Star Scouting's territory and we hope that your car can be one of them!  Traditional rank-based races will be offered, along with modified and open classes.   

For Cub Scouts to race at the event in a rank-based race, the participant must satisfy one of the two membership requirements:

  • Registered as a Cub Scout at some point since January 1st, 2021.
  • 5th Grade Cub Scout who bridged (joined) Scouts BSA since September 1st, 2020

 Additional information will be released in the event registration, but here are some of the event specifics:

  • The virtual race will be run on Saturday June 5th
  • Locations are being confirmed, but the plan is to offer car drop-off and pick-up locations throughout the council to be facilitated in the two weeks leading up to the event (to avoid the need to mail cars/ have every participant deliver cars to Base Camp).  
  • Due to the car drop-off plan, any cars with modifications violating the council rules will automatically be entered into an open/ modified class—the event organizing committee is dedicated to ensuring that every car will race.

More information will be available in early April here: https://www.northernstar.org/News/eNavigator/about-our-council-pinewood-derby-race.  Save the date, and we hope that you will join us in June!
