Important: After lengthy consideration I have decided to not manage any races in 2016 and beyond.  If you have an upcoming race that has already been confirmed, I will gladly fulfill my commitment.  Please see the pricing page for information on other tracks that are available for rent along the Wasatch Front. offers a state-of-the-art pinewood derby experience for Cub Scout packs in Salt Lake County and northern Utah County

How races are run

  • The kids race their cars - rather than watching an adult race their car
  • Each car races the same number of times in each lane
  • The computer will have each car race with as many different cars as possible
  • Cars will be judged on how fast they are, not on what place they finished (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th)
  • Times for each heat will be added up; the car with the lowest time will be the winner
  • Races typically take about 45 minutes for 25 racers
