Each race begins with cars being readied at the starting line.  The inspected cars are kept in a secure area until race time.  Assistants remove the cars from the secure area and hand them to the starter.  The starter places the cars in front of the starting pins.

The starter sets the cars in motion by depressing the starting lever.  The lever simultaneously pulls down the starting pins in front of each car.  Gravity pulls the cars down the steep hill.

After initially gaining speed on the starting hill, the cars coast down a long, level straightway to the finish line.  Note the two adult judges sitting on either side of the black finish line.  The blue pillows are placed at the end of the track to catch any runaway race cars.

I wrote Pinewood Derby 101 after going through the Pinewood Derby process.  I was a novice and had to learn it all from scratch.  This site's goal is to share practical tips that help kids and parents enjoy building pinewood cars together.  Linking to this site is encouraged (no permission required.)  Feel free to contact me with questions, comments or to share information.  Click here for contact information.
