Play sound effects or have a group count down before each race. The kids love it and it builds excitement.
Keep a few wheels and axles on hand to replace broken parts.
Bring basic tools to the race so that small repairs can be made or weights removed if a car is too heavy.
A few balloons placed throughout the race area will add to the festivities.
The more prizes you give out, the better. Give prizes for the funniest car, slowest car, ugliest car and so on.
Don't hold your pinewood derby race on a week night, there just isn't enough time. Schedule the race on the weekend starting early afternoon.
