Derby Timer LLC

After experiencing my first AWANA Grand Prix and Cub Scout Pinewood Derby with my kids, I was shocked at the high cost of finish line timers.  The cost was just too high for these non-profit kid centered organizations.  

I thought I could build a better derby timer at a more affordable price.  The result is Derby Timer.  Derby Timer is a part time business run by a father in Fayetteville, NY.

There is no such thing as a "standard track" or "standard starting gate".  Some installs may need a bit creativity to match your specific track or gate.  Derby Timer has more flexibility designed into it than many other timers in the market.  If for any reason you cannot get Derby Timer to work with your track setup, or just decide Derby Timer is not for you, you have 30 days to return it for a full refund.
