THE "CHALLENGER" PINEWOOD DERBY TRACK

If you are looking for a way to revitalize your existing Pinewood Derby track, or even if you are building a new one, read on...

The aluminum track plating and track design drawings originally available through BSA Supply Division are now available exclusively from Beta Crafts, Incorporated.

PRECISION TRACK PLATING
These 93"-long aluminum sections can be attached to your track framework end-to-end and side-by-side to form the ultimate Pinewood Derby racing surface! To assure precision registration between each 93" section, the design utilizes 'pins' between each section (see photo,) and a channel/groove design for side-to-side registration between lanes. The use of an aluminum surface resists the shrinking, warping, and aging that afflicts wood surfaced tracks. The track surface is also very light weight to facilitate ease of assembly/disassembly. For example: The plating surface of a four lane track includes 24-93" aluminum sections with a total weight of only 17 lbs.
