The Pinewood Derby and Its History in Cub Scouting
The pinewood derby is a racing event for unpowered, unmanned miniature cars. Pinewood derbies are often run by chapters of the Cub Scouts program of Boy Scouts of America. With the help of adults, Scouts build their own cars from wood, usually from kits containing a block of pine wood, 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 organizer equipment and awards. Similar Cub Scouting events include the raingutter regatta and the space derby.
