Pinewood Derby Stories and Photos from Maximum Velocity
I've been trying to get some of the feature articles for our pinewood derby newsletter, The Pinewood Derby Times, ready to go. The third season of the newsletter will start again in October. I am expecting some great guest articles this year, and I will be publishing the results of some experiments on speed techniques. Should make for some interesting reading.

There was a pinewood derby race at the Ohio State fair on August 3. I was delighted to receive comments from some trophy winners who used our products.
There is some interesting discussion on friction (and other topics) in pinewood derby racing on the forum at: derbytalk.com. You might want to check it out.
