The track has 4 twenty four inch segments. I made it so it can come apart for storage. I put a divider in the middle and boards on the sides to keep the cars on the track.

Reminds me of our old Pinewood Derby Days. I bought a kit from the scout store and shaped it with a buck knife and some sand paper. I embedded a quarter in the bottom for added weight. Next thing we knew we won 1st place in the pack and went to the next level of competition. The key is powdered graphite on the axles. Good luck!

This is great, I was asked by a friend to help with his son’s troupe, build night. I also get to build a car. I am excited as I was never a boy scout, so finally get to build and run a car.

Brings back memories from years ago when my son was just a little tike, he’s now 22. Our church group used to build derby cars and race them. We had some real barn burner races, and brought home several trophies over the years. Nice job!
