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.

Talked to Greg on the phone the other night for a country minute! What a super guy, who is working hard to make this event memorable for all those who participate! As of Saturday they had proxy entries from 17 states, I think

Greg mentioned you and a few other league racers were going to be holding a building workshop of some kind there!? Get some video of your work shop!! And pictures!
Judging by the sponsor's page on the site, it seems the proxy community vendors and leagues have stepped up to support Mid America. It sounds like everyone in attendance or proxy racing will go home with prizes of some kind; League entry fees, cars, wheels, kits, shirts, trophies, and on and on and on. A unilateral move made by all in this proxy world to come together!
