Cub scouts participating in Pinewood Derby Building Day.

Pinewood Derby Building Day held for Dale City scouts

In Boy Scouts, Community Involvement, Pinewood Derby by Steves Auto Repair and Tire

Dale City scouts gained hands-on experience at Steve’s Auto Repair.

Members of Cub Scout Pack 1373 participated in a Pinewood Derby Building Day.

We hosted the program at our Woodbridge auto repair shop, 2603 Hanco Center Drive, on January 20.

This annual tradition provides scouts and their families access to the space and tools they need to make pinewood derby cars.

The scouts, ranging from kindergarten through fifth-grade, were responsible for designing and painting their vehicles. Adults provided help and guidance, as needed.

Our Pinewood Derby Building Day and community support

Steve’s Auto Repair started sponsoring local pinewood derbies in 2013. It held its first Pinewood Derby Building Day a few years later.

“We look forward to this event each year,” Steve’s Auto Repair Owner Scott Whitling said. “It’s great seeing the kids prepare for the races. Plus, we’re able to support an organization that’s helping them learn valuable skills.”

Scout groups that would like to set up pinewood derby building days can call Steve’s Auto Repair at (703) 670-8005 and ask for Scott.

Scouting is one of the Prince William County organizations our autoshop helps. We also support the Prince William County/Manassas Boys & Girls Clubs and are a corporate member of the Lake Ridge Rotary Club

Last year, we sponsored the Lake Ridge Lancers and Dale City Little League.

“We are a big proponent of giving back to the community that we serve,” Whittling added.
