Pinewood Derby Check-In / Impounding (Mandatory)

  • Rye Presbyterian Church 882 Boston Post Road Rye, NY, 10580 United States (map)

You must bing your Pinewood Derby car for inspection and impounding at Rye Pres between 7 and 9 PM. It will be weighed, measured and inspected for compliance with the rules, which you can find here on the Files page of our website. Then it will be impounded until the races — you will not get it back until afterwards. There are many other rules, but please note that the problem we see most often, year-in and year-out is scouts putting weights on the underside of their cars — you can only do so if you fully recess them below the surface of the wood; otherwise they will drag on the track, which rises up between the wheels!
