Ever heard of the Golden Turtle award. Slowest car to make it all the way to the end of the track. Used to be involved with pinewood derby’s through the YMCA Indian Guides. There was one group in Toledo that had a roped off area at the end of the track for Grandparents. They were served hot dogs, chips, and drinks by Dads in Tuxedos. Pretty funny. Lots of good memories.
Our Cubmaster made a car with a wireless spy camera on it. We would send it down the track just after the racing cars started and show the in car camera on a projector. One car was so slow, it got rear ended by the camera car.
