Date, Time and Cost

The 2nd Annual Woodlands Trail Worthy Derby is scheduled for 10/29/19 in the gym at Pear Orchard Presbyterian Church. This year we are excited to open the event to other local troops. The cost to participate is $9. This will cover your car kit and a meal the night of the race.

Building and Testing

The track will be assembled in the gym on 10/15/19  at 6:15 PM for anyone that would like to make a test run. Please let me know if you need assistance cutting out the body of your car. There are a few men in troop 1031 with bandsaws that would be happy to help.

Race Details

Each racer will be guaranteed a minimum of 6 races with their car. Winners of each heat will advance to semi-final and final races. Awards will be given for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places. Check-in for the event will start at 6:00 PM. Once your car is weighed and checked in, you will not be able to touch or modify your car. After check in, the cars will be displayed in a car show. Judges will be evaluating the cars and awards will be given for the following categories: 

  1.  Most Unique

  2. Most Realistic

  3. Best Paint Job

  4. Fastest Looking

Kit Purchase, RSVP, and Registration

In order to participate in the race, you must purchase a kit through Troop MS-1031. This ensures that all racers are using the same stock materials. To purchase a kit, click the CheddarUp link below. This link will also serve as an RSVP to the event so that we can get a headcount for food. You can purchase more than one car per trailman, if you wish to have a test vehicle, but only one car per trailman can be registered for the race.

A few weeks prior to the race, you will receive instructions with a link to register your car (name, make, model, etc.). We will also make information available at a later date regarding the race rules, and instructions on building a car.
