We are a large group of pinewood derby enthusiasts from all over the United States. Some of us only race on the local level in Den, Pack, District and Council level. Others of us have children who have out grown the local scene and now race at the professional league level know as proxy racing.
The Global Craftsman's cars are unique in that no two cars look the same. They might sacrifice some speed in order to set their car's style apart from the others. They set a standard for all cars after to be duplicated in design, paint and modifications. They use unique products which then become industry standards for all.
Global Derby Society
Here at Global Derby Society, we do not care how fast you can go, how well you can paint. We do not care which league you are affiliated with, or whose derby products you think is better. Pinewood derby has greatly evolved over the past years due to the professional league racer. Companies have stepped up to provide all racers, both league and local level, with better tools and racing equipment. No one company can claim responsibility for this progression. Each has taken time to assess other company’s products, listened to feedback from racers and then tweaked their products accordingly.
Ok BSB here goes. I am Mark or Downslope I have been racing league racing now for around a year. I started like everyone else helping my son build boy scout cars for three times prior to league racing. I was lucky enough to win the March Madness race this year which was my first big win. I am a computer programmer for a company that they don't let me say. (really) I run the CCRL league here in NC and invite all to come race with us, it is alot of fun and has alot of very competitive racers. You will learn alot from the guys. Well thats about it so off to the shop to start a new car.
