Wood Block Car Racing for Grown-ups

Started by some scout dads and former scouts, MDnA is an excuse to keep racing wood cars, and not have to keep pretending our kids built them. We will race, trash-talk, and drink.

We'll have multi-heat races that follow standard rules, 'outlaw' races where we bend the rules as much as we can, and other special events.


MDnA uses a classic, wooden, 4-lane track with modern electronics to collect times and 'to-scale' MPH.  Races will be scheduled in the Memphis, TN area.

MDnA is not affiliated with the BSA or their Pinewood Derby events.

2019 Races


Use an official wood car kit or a similar kit from a hobby store. Check the rules for the event before building. Don't know where to get a kit? Ask us.


Every race will have a pre-race check-in and impound for inspections to verify the rules (if any) are followed. 


The easy part. Race officials will schedule, stage, and run every heat. Races may change per event, but most will involve multiple heats, averaging times for overall scores.


Don't want to race? Just attend and pick one to root for. Or help vote for design awards.
