The Narragansett Council’s detailed rules and specifications for a Pinewood Derby Car has evolved over many years dealing with overly zealous Cub Scout Parents. It is the responsibility of each Pack to fully inspect, measure, and weigh each car so it meets the technical specifications of the Narragansett Council Pinewood Derby Committee before payment of the racing fees. DO NOT REGISTER ILLEGAL CARS.
On race day, the car owner will be given a short time during the check in and car inspection period to make minor corrections to meet all the technical specifications. Car owners must supply their own tools.
The greatest number of rule violations in previous years has been the use of liquid lubricants, cars that exceed the 5-ounce weight limit, and cars with pointed front ends.
DO NOT send a car to the Regional Derby, if you have knowledge the Cub Scout did not participate in building it.
We need the full names of all Pinewood Derby Car Owners racing at least one week in advance to prepare nametags. ONLY registered Scouts are allowed to race.
Registrations are only accepted on the Narragansett Council Website
We do not handle cash at the event and we do not give refunds for any reason.
Each Pack is required to send two Registered Cub Scout Leaders who will sit with their Cub Scouts for the entire race to insure proper Scouting behavior during the event.
The Cub Leader who completes the online registration is responsible for the Pack’s compliance to all the rules of the Narragansett Council Pinewood Derby Committee. This Cub Leader must attend the race and sign off on the below declarations:
I also understand that I am responsible if a Cub Scout from my Pack presents an illegal car for the technical inspection at the Narragansett Council Regional Pinewood Auto Race and is prohibited from the competition.
