Pinewood Derby


With two boys, this is our ninth (and second-to-last) Pinewood Derby. We've moved from a homemade track and stopwatches back when Jesse was a little guy to a local fire station, which now hosts the Pinewood Derby on an amazing high-tech track with all the electronic gadgets to make a fast and error-free derby.

The excitement's always the same, from generation to generation, whether the derby is in someone's backyard or on a super-fast track. Boys and derby cars: thrill of the race and a secret hope of winning. (Duncan placed 5th out of 38 cars, less than 0.01 sec from getting a trophy.)
