Pinewood Derby Stories and Photos from Maximum Velocity
PINEWOOD DERBY CAR SHOWCASE
Vector - William Jenkins
This car was built for an adult Pinewood Derby to benefit the United
Way. It was based on the Maximum-Velocity Vector with slight
modifications. The derby rules did not allow outlaw wheels and the
wheels could not have the inside lettering removed so this car used
Ultralight Speed Wheels on polished grooved axles. It came in first
place out of fifteen cars entered and never lost a heat.
Stealth - William Jenkins
This car was my second entry in the United Way benefit derby. It was
based on the Maximum-Velocity Stealth This car also used Ultralight
Speed Wheels on polished non-grooved BSA speed axles. The car came in
second place to my other entry.
Oilers - Nathan Paul
This is my son Brenden Paul's car from Pack 954 in Tulsa, OK. This was
his Scout division car that took 5th place on race day. While it
didn't win, the project was a fun one since Brenden painted it to
represent the local CHL hockey team, the Tulsa Oilers. Our family
sponsors one of the players and Brenden was lucky enough to get him to
sign it before race day.
Panthers - Nathan Paul
My son ran this car in the open class for pack 954 in Tulsa, OK. You
can see his love for the NFL theme, and the body design is one that
has served us both well in years past. The car took second place
in the race.
