“I wanted to devise a wholesome, constructive activity that would foster a closer father-son relationship and promote craftsmanship and good sportsmanship through competition.”
Don Murphy, 1953
Pinewood Derby History is made in 1953.
May 15, 1953 was the first race at the Manhattan Beach House in CA and 64 years later on May 12, 2017, we will be celebrating Monmouth Council’s 100th Anniversary Council-Wide Pinewood Derby Race in New Jersey.
