  • Trophies will be awarded to the top 3 winners of each race.

  • Awards will also be awarded to the “Most Energy Efficient”, “Cubs Choice”, and “Judge’s Choice” (no doubt the car belongs to a scout) cars in each den.

Race Fees:

  • The fee is $5.00 per car.  The fee covers the race, awards (see race specific) and a patch.


Notes for Scouting Leaders:

SPECIAL NOTE TO ALL CONCERNED:  This project is for cub scouts, and is recommended as such by the National Boy Scouts of America.  Parents, please let your scout make his car with minimal assistance from any adult.  The District Staff STRONGLY SUGGESTS that each pack leader emphasize this idea within the pack.  We require that the cars be built in 2016-2017 and has not been raced in a district PWD.  (This does not apply to the open class race)
