Pinewood Pro is proud to have helped manage pinewood derby car races, volunteered at pinewood derby races, donated to needy scouts, Cub Scout Packs and Boy Scouts every year since we started Pinewood Pro in 1999.
Pinewood Pro Donations
As a former Cub Scout and father of a Boy Scout (that's my son as a Cub Scout in the upper right after winning a Pinewood Derby race), we believe very strongly in the values of scouting and helping by giving back to Scouting and pinewood derby car racing.

Tips & Hints
If you are using 3/8" round weights, drill your 3/8" weight holes before cutting out the rest of the car because it is easier to hold the full block. Always use a clamp to hold your block before drilling or cutting. Safety First!

Put a coat of wood primer on your car before painting it because pine wood is porous and will absorb the first coat of paint. Lightly sand the primer after it dries, then apply a final coat (or two) for a clean, finished look.
My son won third in his pack, and we are waiting the district race. Thanks again for all of your wonderful products!
My son won an award for most futuristic design. We really appereciated all your help. Thanks for all the help and guidance.
My son used your Tiger Claw design for his car. I read the tips on your website, and race day exceeded our expectations. Daniel's car won every race for his den, and qualified for the district races. At district, it seemed that his car got faster with every run, and he won first place! His car also won a trophy for most scout spirit. Thanks for your quality products and tips. We have memories that will last us our lifetimes.
