  • Your car must meet the following requirements:
    • Weight Limit (Maximum allowance) – 5oz.
    • Car body length – 7in.
    • Car body width (not including wheels) – 1-3/4in.
    • The space from the bottom of the wheels to the bottom of the car/weights must be more than 1/4in.
  • You must bring your car to be weighed at AWANA on Thursday, February 29th.

Our Recommendations

  • We recommend that you purchase a pinewood derby race car kit at a craft store or online. However, this is not a requirement if you prefer to build your own.
  • If you get a kit from a craft store, be sure to use the small black axle caps that come in the kit. This will keep the wheels on the car.
  • Do not glue the wheels onto the car axles because they need to spin freely.
  • Wait to completely attach all of your weights until after the weigh-in. There is a chance that the kits come with too much weight and we will have to take some off of your car.
