Pinewood Derby Reference Materials
Pinewood Derby Links
Darin McGrew's Home Page has a great deal of

Derby Info zip file contains several text files plus a compiled basic program that can be
used to create heats for a round-robin type of race using Stearns Method. It
attempts to let each scout race against either other on alternating tracks. It is an
alternative to double elimination, that many packs prefer. Thanks to: Neil Gould
(firstname.lastname@example.org), for this information.
