What are Kub Kars?
Kub Kars are toy racing cars built from kits. Each kit contains a block of pine, plastic wheels and metal axles. The wood is sawn (usually by adults) to the Cub Scouts’ specifications. The youth then sand, add paint, and other embellishments for both speed and style. Kars are raced, often three at a time, down a sloped wooden track. Sometimes electronic timers are used. Cub Scouts can also demonstrate a great deal of creativity in making their car.
Kub Kars are derived from Pinewood Derby by Boy Scouts of America. See: A fascinating look at the history of the Pinewood Derby (Bryan on Scouting Blog, Jan 21, 2019)
