APRA is taking the excitement of pinewood racing to the streets of America.  The pinewood racing story begins in Manhattan Beach, California.  In 1953, a scout master by the name of Don Murphy created pinewood racing so he and his young son could do an activity together.   Murphy's idea was so popular, that a year later the first race held outside of scouting was conducted by the Los Angeles City Recreation and Parks Department.

Since 1953, an estimated 50 million boys and girls have built and raced pinewood cars.  Today, youth organizattions in the United States such as the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Awana, Royal Rangers, Royal Ambassadors and others take part in racing competitions.  Over the years, corporations, trade associations, chambers of commerce and the US military have also embraced pinewood racing to promote team building and sportsmanship.

Now, 50 years later, in another beach community on the other side of America, a new chapter in pinewood racing is being written.  APRA is headquarted in the Myrtle Beach, SC area and is the creation of another man named Murphy.  Radio and television personality, Banana Jack Murphy created the APRA in 2014.
