Location: Westminster Presbyterian Church; 3639 Old Chapel Hill Rd, Durham, NC 27707
Broadcast Link: (Pending)
Car Drop-Off and Registration Process: Scouts will present their cars at the Derby location
beginning at 9:00 AM before the race. All cars must meet all construction criteria regardless of
competing in speed race or visual judging. Scouts will also need to turn in Registration Form
signed by scout, adult helper, and Cubmaster as well as the Racer Info Form. Patches will be
presented at Registration. We also ask that all Scouts wear their uniform to take a photo for
recognizing winners on broadcast.
Car Racing Process: Unfortunately scouts will not be able to race their cars in person this
year. Instead race officials will place the cars at the starting gate. Race officials will do their
best to place all cars consistently the same way every time, with cars aimed straight down the
track and not touching the center guide rail.
Car Judging Process (for Most Original and Most Beautiful): Similar to years past, cars
judged on visual appearance will be placed together on showcase tables and reviewed by
impartial race officials.
Race Day Show Broadcast: The broadcast program is still being developed, but intent will be
to show all heats from all three race series. For each heat, the video will switch between the
race computer, starting gate camera, and finish line camera. Broadcast will also attempt to
show all visually-judged cars as well. During awards presentations, winners will be announced
and a photo of the Scout shown if available.
Returning Cars and Trophies: Cars will be returned to owners and trophies presented to
winners between 1:00 and 2:30 pm and 4:00 and 5:00 pm. Cars/trophies can be released to
Cubmasters or Assistant Cubmasters with prior notice during registration.
