PINEWOOD DERBY MEMORY New Track Record
Three years ago, after using your web site, downloads, etc., my son Jackson and I were able to slap together a car for him. The night before the race during the final prep, Jackson broke the wood trying to get the axle in. But we got it done.
Since it was my first year as a Pinewood Dad, another Dad invited me over to the local "Guru's" house to weigh the cars. Well immediately upon arrival, they pointed to Jackson's car, and said, laughing hysterically, "That's his car?"
Fast forward to race night. Jackson's first race. "New Track Record"
Funny thing, the Guru had told me the night before the only thing his son had never done was set a Track Record.
In the end, Jackson won the Pack race, and got to go on to the district race to represent our Pack.
