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.
Just a little note -- make sure you change the name to Mid-America Pinewood Derby... just so that all the branding will stay intact.
Thank you for noticing our event as this was just the first year - and will take place annually from here on out... and we will continue to make it a better and improved race.
After finishing the first year I can absolutely say - holly cow - it takes a LOT of work - WOW -- hopefully we have a good structure in place to just work on making everything better and there will not be quite the heavy lifting as there was this year.
