Lake Charles Toyota Box Car Derby


Join us March 12th for our first annual Boy Scouts Box Car Derby Race sponsored by Lake Charles Toyota.  Our gracious sponsor has provided a day of fun with our own Box Car Derby for the Calcasieu Area Council.  What is a box car derby you ask?  Exactly the picture that popped into your mind!  Young people design and build their own cars out of cardboard that they race around our track.  The event includes pit stops for tire rotation (turn your socks inside out and put your shoes back on), windshield cleaning (goggle washing), refueling (water for tired racers) and more provided by your own amazing crew - - - YOUR FAMILY!

This family event will be held at the Lake Charles Toyota Dealership located at 3905 Gerstner Memorial Blvd, in Lake Charles.  Lake Charles Toyota has sponsored a full day of fun by providing a hot dog lunch and more so be sure to spread the word and get everyone there on March 12th.

The day will start at 8 am with check in.  From 9-10, our select panel of judges will evaluate our box car racers to pick a winner in catagories for the most artistic, most creative, best dressed driver, and more so use your imagination and have fun!  Heats begin at 10 a.m. and are set for the appropriate age level of our racers as each heat is set to host a maziminum of a specific rank.  (Lion Cub only race with Lion Cubs, etc.)  

We also are looking for Scouts, BSA assistance for our programs.  We need Scouts to help present the colors, sing the national anthem, assist with judging,  and more as they look sharp in their Field Uniforms offering assistance where needed to make this a day our Cub Scouts won't forget!  Interested in helping, please email

Please remember that this is a family event, so there can be no drop offs.  Your family members are needed to be the pit crew for your racer and of course, the loudest cheerleaders in the group!  Don't forget that each scout racing will need safety/sun glasses, tennis shoes and socks, and be ready for fun to participate! 

Register below to reserve a spot and we look forward to seeing you at Lake Charles Toyota on March 12th.

If you have any registration issues, please reach out to Laura Lovell at 530-770-1152 for assistance.
