4th Annual Dirtwood Nationals Pinewood Derby and Truckin Thunder Scout Night Saturday May 2nd

4th Annual Dirtwood Nationals Pinewood Derby and Truckin Thunder Scout Night Saturday May 2nd

Jamaica, VA – If you have ever been involved in a pinewood derby you know how exciting it is not only for the kids but for the adults. Saturday May 2nd Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway will bring that excitement and fun to the speedway as it hosts the 4th Annual Dirtwood Nationals Pinewood Derby as part of Truckin Thunder Scout Night. “We are extremely excited to once again host this event and to help raise money and awareness for ChildHelp.

After the Dirtwood Nationals all Scouts (Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts) if wearing their uniform, will get free admission to enjoy a night of full sized dirt car racing. During the evenings festivities the Speedway will also help in raising money and awareness for the charity ChildHelp®. “I can’t wait for this year’s Dirtwood Nationals event on May 2nd. Every year the event seems to get bigger. Pairing a pinewood derby event with a full scale racing night at Virginia Motor Speedway is a natural. Participants from the local Scouting Community and Virginia Motor Speedway’s racing family will make for a fun-filled evening that also will raise money for one of my favorite charities, ChildHelp®. I feel fortunate to have one of the ChildHelp Villages here in Virginia. Helping them with their work of rehabilitating and caring for severely abused and neglected children is very important to me,” commented Truckin Thunder owner Tom Brooks. There will be three divisions for the Dirtwood Nationals, Scouts, fans and Virginia Motor Speedway competitors. A champion will be crowned in each division and then there will be a run-off to see who will be the overall Dirtwood Nationals Pinewood Derby Champion. Standard Scouting pinewood derby rules will govern the races. For anyone wanting to participate but not having a pinewood derby car, a limited quantity will be available for rent for a $10 donation to ChildHelp.
