A Cubmobile is a Cub Scout powered, wooden race car. It is comparable to Soap Box Races.

Cub Scouts and adults build Cubmobiles out of wood. Races are popular as Pack, District and Council events. Instead of racing carved Pinewood Derby cars, Cub Scouts get to steer and push the Cubmobile.


Races

Downhill - Cubmobiles race downhill against each other. A ramp may be required to start the cars from if no hill is avaliable

Push Car - A team of three Cub Scouts pushes the Cubmobile with one Scout steering.

Safety

  • Always wear a helmet.
  • A Cubmobile should have a seat belt.
  • Scouts should wear closed toed shoes.
