It is that time of year again, Pinewood Derby time! On Tuesday, April 25th Cub Scouts from troops 330, 335, and 388 gathered together to see which scouts derby car was the fastest. Scouts and their father’s were given about a month to create derby cars from blocks of wood that are approximately 7 inches long by 1.75 inches wide by 1.25 inches tall. When the car is finished it must way less then 5 ounces to qualify for racing. The legend is told that the first Pinewood Derby race was held on May 15, 1953 at the Scout House in Manhattan Beach, California by Cub Scout pack 280C.
This year’s event brought thirty-three racers to the track to test out their stuff. Derby cars are randomly selected into four car groups by a computer program and then the race is on! This year each participants car raced eight times, with each races timed. Winners are based on the derby car with the fastest times. This years winners are: third place Nathan Price, second place Zayn Crossley, and first place Shayd Crossley. Congratulations boys and great job to all those who participated!
