Kniesel’s Collision Center, 4031 Wild Chaparral Drive in Shingle Springs, is hosting the fourth annual El Dorado District Pinewood Derby on Saturday, April 26 from 1-4 p.m.

The El Dorado District Pinewood Derby is a Boy Scouts of America event in which Cub Scout packs from the entire El Dorado District compete in a pinewood derby race.

Handmade custom cars are built according to district derby regulations and the first, second and third place winners of best design of each of the Scout Packs are invited to race and show their cars at the district level.

This event is open to all scouts, their friends and family.

“We are thrilled to once again host this fun, family-oriented event for the Cub Scout packs of the El Dorado District,” said Rob Champe, CEO of Kniesels Collision Centers. “As a local family-owned business, we are delighted to provide a venue that supports the Boy Scouts of America organization, their scouts and local families.”

“We have a lot of fun at this event. It’s our fourth year and we are grateful to Kniesel’s Collision Centers, for without them we may not be able to afford this event” said Manon Desrosiers, event chair and organizer for the Boy Scouts of America.

Kniesel’s has held the championships at their location since its inception. They generously have provided, every year, food and drinks to all attendees, paid for trophies, participation pins and rental of tables, chairs and the pinewood derby track.

Two hundred and fifty people attended last year’s event, attracting 100 more than the previous year. The event is expected to draw around 300 people this year.

Kniesel’s Collision Centers is a leading provider of high-quality collision repair since 1968 offering five convenient locations in the Sacramento region: Citrus Heights, downtown Sacramento, Rocklin, Natomas and Shingle Springs.
