MCC Pinewood Derby

Pinewood Derby is back!

last call for entries into the Mecklenburg County Council Pinewood Derby next Saturday morning at UNC Charlotte!


Our event will be Saturday morning in the lobby of the "EPIC" building at UNCC's College of Engineering.

We will accept registrations until Thursday night, so please spread the word to your Cub families!

Below is the tentative schedule of events (the Council site will be updated shortly and a note will be going out to all registered families):

  • Registration/weigh in starts Saturday 9am and closes at 10am. Review the guidelines carefully (available for download on the sign up link). Contact Rob with any logistical concerns. Racers must be in attendance to participate.
  • Parking: Attendees will be permitted to park for free in the surface lots adjacent to the Richardson Stadium (off Phillips Road). The CRI Deck Visitor Parking is available for a fee if those lots fill up.
    • Following successful completion of registration, rosters will be loaded/updated in the computer
    • Racing is tentatively set to start at 10:30am... the track is 6 lanes, so each entry will have 6 races (one on each track)
    • We expect the qualifying Heats to last 90-120 minutes. This is dependent on the number of last-minute entries, so we ask that families stay and cheer on the other Cubs so they dont miss their Heats.
    • The Championship Heats will be run at the conclusion of the general races; we should be complete by 1pm or so.

Please contact Rob Dellinger, Pinewood Derby Coordinator, at 704-763-7083 or via email with any questions or concerns. Excited to get this event back on the Council calendar!
