Greetings, My name is Mike Parrish. I live in northern Indiana. I have building pinewood derby 2001 with my youngest daughter for our Awana group; it has become a great passion.
There is a group of guys at our church that are just a passionate about pinewood derby as those of us on this board (I still can’t get them to sign up). We have 3 open races a year, so I get to build and test year round. The competition is HIGH!!! I own a 2-lane, 42ft. aluminum Best Track, and a Newbold DTX2000 timer. I run Derby Master race managment software.
I am a machinist by trade, but am now a quality engineer with a medical device company. I coach girls soccer and am active in our church.
I race monthly in WIRL. Every month, I get a little faster, but so does the competition! It’s quite a rush to compete against some of the best builders in the Unites States!
