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.

Nice to meet you Most of you know me as "Murph" at PWDR. I am a Cubmaster in Cub Scouts. We just ran Raingutter Ragetta tonight and my Son took first place.
I am married to a good wife that has to put up with me racing cars down through the house once a month (you all have been there) and two children who keep me on my toes.
I got started on this forum stuff over at Derby Talk. Thats where I meet Sporty and it was all down hill from there!
I enjoy helping other racers out. Ca$h has helped me get speed over the last one-half year. DaPine and Evo have helped also. You get by with a little help from your friends. That is what league racing is all about: Friends.
