2018 PACK 236 DERBY RACE RULES AT A GLANCE

To race in Scout Class, cars are designed and produced with a scout. 

ONLY use wood, wheels and nails from Kit distributed by Pack. 

No modification to wheel base. Only lubricant is Graphite Powder. 

No 3rd‐party components except weights. Cars meet weight, length, height, clearance and all other specs in Pack 236 Rules or race in the Open Class.   

Pack236 Rules available at Pack Meeting and Pack236.com.   

Questions? Contact a Wolf Den Leader: Den6leader@pack236.com, Den16leader@pack236.com, Den5leader@pack236.com

 

Our Pinewood Derby is a Cub Scout/Parent craft‐learning experience and competition. Parents involve the Scout to greatest extent possible in the car’s construction and registration (factoring in scout age and capability). Parents are encouraged to show the

Scout the proper use of tools and paint; and to add strength/finesse as desired.
