Compete against other Pioneers to take home the trophy in April 2021, when our derby will be held at Lakeside Lutheran High School in Lake Mills WI.

Boys qualify for this event by placing well in their district or train derbies.  All districts may send up to 6 cars for craft and up to 6 cars for speed, regardless of how many trains they have, but districts with more than 6 active trains may send 1 car for each active train for craft and 1 car for each active train for speed.  Trains that do not have a district race may send 1 car for craft and 1 car for speed.
