"You guys know that the derby is over, right?!!"
The appropriate term is league racing. Leagues don't find much discussion on DT, because DT is primarily dedicated to the discussion of derbies as an organized children's activity. Nevertheless, some Derby Talkers are/have been involved with leagues.chobo wrote:I think I have been using the wrong search words, but is there a listing somewhere of pinewood derby races that one can enter without having to be in BSA or any other type of affiliation?
The annual Mid-America Race has an open category which allows proxy racing; however, it is BSA related.
It is hard and I could only tell you to check with churches and perhaps people who sell your kit that you use.
It takes time, but when you do this, Usually you can find a race or two, that fits your car, the race might have already been held for the year, but it helps for the following year.
There is many race options out there for you, but you might have to be willing to go with a bsa car to do those races.
Bsa is more common naturally and thus providing allot more chances and opportunities for you.

Awana Grand Prix and Pinewood Derby racing - Where a child, an adult and a small block of wood combine for a lot of fun and memories.
As far as finding local races, like sporty said check with churches, community events, I have heard walmart has a derby in some cities. Craigslist might give you results. Also search your area for someone who does Pinewood Derby track rentals, once you find them and their schedual you will have a whole list of dates and events in your area.
NPWDRL is the league that I will be sending my car to race once its finished. They also have a message board.
