Pro Division Info

Format for Pro Division Racing
  • The 2015 Pinewood Derby National Championships will be held on a state of the art 4 lane 42′ Best Track with a custom roller bearing start system and a custom built stop section to protect your cars from any damage.
  • Each car will get 4 runs, one run in each lane.  After the preliminary 4 runs the top 20% builders  or 6 builders will move to a championship round to determine a winner. The number of cars taken will depend on how many spots down we must go until the top 20% of the builders are represented or 6 builders - what ever is greater. It is possible for a builder to have multiple cars advance.
  • The finals will consist of 4 more runs. The fastest average of those 4 runs will determine the winner. Each builder can only claim one spot in the final standings so the best performing car for each builder will be the only one that qualifies for final placement.
  • 1st through 6th place will be awarded in Each Class - 1 trophy per class per builder
  • Best of Show Trophy - voted on by VIP Mid America Derby Panel of Judges
  •  Awards will be announced throughout the Day in the Awards Auditorium
**There will likely be some special Awards above and beyond - stay tuned**
