If you want to purchase a track, here is a list of pinewood derby track manufacturers:
1. Best Track All Aluminum Tracks are strong, lightweight, easy to assemble and reasonably priced!
The only track you can add lanes to one at a time.
2. Beta Crafts, Inc.
Route 130, P.O. Box 563
Cranbury, NJ 08512
"Challenger" Aluminum track.
These are the guys who make the kits for the Boy Scouts for MANY years!
They make the following kits for the BSA: pinewood derby (cars and tractor
trailer), raingutter regatta, space derby. Beta Crafts makes the black-end
flap PWD kits. They do NOT make the PWD kits that have the orange-end flaps.
The "Challenger Track" is the aluminum deck that the Scout Catalog lists.
The extruded aluminum decking is so fast that a 50-foot track is suggested
in place of the standard 32-foot track. It has precision joints that lock
on the track segments. The 50-foot track only requires two 4x8 sheets of
plywood. The dimensions are exactly the same as a standard 32-foot track
except that the flat surface is longer. They will drill the holes for the
popular start gates and timers. They also make an extension that attaches
to the top for the truck big-rig races without having to modify the start
gate or anything else!
