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


Pinewood Derby events are enjoyed by many local scouts.

However, preparing for a Pinewood Derby can be a bit challenging. You need a fair amount of space and the right tools, which some families don’t have access to.

To provide youth with the opportunity to participate, Steve’s Auto Repair & Tire is opening up its building and offering needed equipment to scout groups.

This annual tradition started several years ago, and our support of the derbies extends back to 2014. 

“We’ve been running Pinewood Derby workshops for many years and enjoy helping out the scouts in this way,” Steve’s Auto Repair & Tire Owner Scott Whitling said.

Our shop is located at 2603 Hanco Center Drive. Any scout packs that would like to set up Pinewood Derby workshops should call Steve’s Auto Repair at (703) 670-8005 and ask for Scott Whitling, or email
