  • Due to the need to load entries in the computer system for this event, we cannot accept cars that are checked in late.  If there is a chance you are unable to make the check in time, please make arrangements with your Den Leader.  You can always have someone check in your car on your behalf.

  • Race officials will check each car for compliance, and space will be available for tune-ups. The track will not be open for testing.

  • When your car is ready and lubricated, you will give it to a Pit Boss to be measured and weighed. If necessary, you can add or remove weight as needed. A repair station will be on-site

  • After passing the check-in process all cars will be “impounded” until the completion of race circuit.

  • After check-in and prior to the race, cars will be displayed and judged in the multiple categories.

  • Heats will be run in six-car races by Rank, rotating cars on different tracks. At the end of each set, the 1st, 2nd & 3rd Place winners will be announced for that Rank.

  • After all Rank Races are complete the 1st, 2nd & 3rd Place cars will move on race to determine the overall Pack winner.  If your son is a winner, please stick around!



The Pack supplies the official kit... check with your Den Leader to acquire one.  A build day for those that need access to tools & support is set for Super Bowl Sunday, location TBD!   FOLLOW THE CUB SCOUT MOTTO:  Do Your Best!


Check-in your Car on Race Day

CHECK IN BETWEEN 10:30am & 12:30pm on race day.  Cars must meet the requirements on size and weight (see Race Guidelines).  A "pit crew" will be available at the race for minor repairs/modifications

Fun for the whole family

Late afternoon, we will be hosting an "open race" for older cars or for brothers, sisters & parents... rules on cars are the same, but we open up the track for non-Cub Scouts to have fun!  On March 21st, Cubs can all compete in the County-wide event at the NASCAR Hall of Fame!
