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.

Goes out to 5KIDS RACING!!
It seems he raced in a National Pinewood Derby Event out in Utah, where his car raced past the Elite, Pro and Novice division cars to set a National track record!! He set the Single Pass record as well as the Six Pass Average record. Although relegated to a lower race class he was still able to conquer the mountain!!
Congrats again 5Kids Racing!!
Maybe he will post us some photographs of his winning car!!
Congratulations. Are there any other results from any other racing that took place? Thank you, Patrick
Hey Patrick, thank you for your interest!! The organization which ran that particular National race was: NPWDRL, not to be confused with the pinewood derby league which runs out of Ohio called, PWDR. Although each have monthly league races, each league has its own set of rules for each division.
Oh yea back to your question.
I personally have no other results to update people with. I received a text message stating I was no longer wanted on the NPWDRL racing website due to the affiliation this forum has with various vendors, pinewood derby leagues as well as what it being promoted on this web forum. Perhaps one of our members and/or the speedster 5Kids Racing will have some results for you!!
