Ranger Derby


Boys and their families are invited to build their very own derby car and put it to the racing test against other Royal Ranger boys. Boys with the winning cars in their division will receive trophies! The event is open to anyone who would like to build and race! 

Wooden Derby Car Kits can be purchased for $10 in the Royal Ranger Office (Room G205) or at the Warehouse on workdays. Cars must be turned in by Saturday, May 5. 

On Workdays boys and their families can use the Warehouse (1155 W Anderson Rd, OCAG Door). Workdays are: April 21, 28 and May 5th from 9am-Noon. The Warehouse has ALL of the tools you will need to build a successful car including weights and axel graphite (e.g. drill presses, scroll saws, paint). There is also a scale to weigh your car and a measurement standard to confirm your car meets race specifications. Lastly, there are experienced leaders who can help you build your car.

QUESTIONS? Stop by the Royal Rangers office on Wednesday!



  1. Purchase the official car kit at the Ranger Office. 
  2. Design and build your car at home. If you need help, come to the Derby Workdays held on the three Saturday mornings leading up to the event at the church warehouse on Anderson st.
  3. Turn your completed car in to the officials on the weigh-in date. It is up to you to ensure your car is fast and under weight. Download the spec sheet for details.
  4. Show up at the event and watch your car win all the prizes! Family and friends welcome.
