Come Derby with Us!

Come Derby with Us! 

Do you have a youth that is interested in cars and racing?  Then we have the event for you.  Pinewood Derby is an event that allows youth to decorate wooden cars that can then be raced for fun.

If your youth is interested in creating and racing a derby car, sign-up today! To simplify the process we will use stock cars that are pre-cut.  Youth can select from various designs and then join us on one of of our three build nights. During the build night youth will decorate their car with supplies provided.

There will be a fee of $5 to participate in this event.
