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.

here were a couple more photographs taken at the Mid America Derby. I swiped them off Cub Scout Pack 565's Facebook page
unfortunately the eagle/flag car got checked in, but they checked it into the adult league division and its intended race was the scout race LOL. fortunately it did not lose 1 single pass the entire league division.
oh I left out why it never lost. greg and jason told me they had a small mix up with a car or two and the car never got entered into the computer.
the whole race was for a charity and to help bring attention to pinewood derby so I am not upset!! greg, jason and the whole mid america race was quite the event this year!!
