Pinewood Derby

This was our first experience with Pinewood Derby. We had no idea what to expect. We hadn't ever seen a car kit until this year. Of course we went with a Police Car. The whole weight thing was over our heads. Riggles helped Garrett put a couple of fishing weights in the car making it a whoppin' 2.9 oz at weigh in. We had no idea that we could've brought more weight to add to it and pimp it out a bit more. We thought we would bring in our car, make sure it wasn't over 5 ounces and that was that.

It was still lots of fun. Garrett was excited his "almost" made it to the finish line. I didn't even think it was going to make it that far. He was all about telling me how wrong I was with my expectations. More than a couple of times. What else can I say but, we had fun putting it together. We had fun racing it. And we learned A LOT for next years race!!
This was the closest it came in all 4 lanes
