Construction Industry Pinewood Derby is April 20


Annual event supports the Greater St. Louis Area Council – Boy Scouts of America

Cub Scouts have been building and racing Pinewood Derby cars made of wheels, nails and blocks of wood since 1953. The annual event is more than just racing, it builds confidence and Scouts can take pride in their own skills and hard work.

The Construction Industry Pinewood Derby, Thursday, April 20, at the Moto Museum, offers you a chance to have your own day at the races while supporting the Scouts of the Greater St. Louis Area Council, Boy Scouts of America.

Now in its sixth year, this annual event, allows adults to experience the same fun and competition as the scouts. Participants build a car to showcase and race against other construction industry professionals, vendors and clients and enjoy friendly competition and valuable industry recognition while supporting local youth.


Proceeds support the operations of the Greater St. Louis Area Council and the more than 66,000 young people who benefit from its programs. The Greater St. Louis Area Council includes 26 Missouri counties and 25 Illinois counties.


A who’s who of industry professionals makes up this year’s Race Committee, including: Scott Wilson, CEO of S.M. Wilson & Co.; Dan Wienstroer, executive director of the Painting and Decorating Foundation & Wall and Ceiling Contractors Association; Matt Doell, vice president at Sachs Electric; John Gaal, director of training and workforce development for the St. Louis-Kansas City Carpenters Regional Council; Mark Hugeback, principal M+H Architects; and Matt Muller, director ACW Alliance.


Sponsorship opportunities range from $500 to $10,000
