Pinewood Derby is a highlight of the year for most Cub Scout packs. Watching and cheering for the brightly colored cars speeding down the track can be very exciting.
But I think it is helpful to remember that Pinewood Derby is not really about making and racing fast cars.
Pinewood Derby is about:
- Kids and parents spending time together on a project
- Learning good sportsmanship
- Having a fun pack event

BSA Supply Group now carries wide body side panels ($2.99/pair) which you can use to add extra width to your Pinewood Derby car.
Once they are glued on, the panels add an extra 3/8″ over the wheels, but do not cause the car to exceed size regulations.
