Cub Scout Pack 270 held their annual Pinewood Derby on February 26 at the American Legion Post 168 in Thurmont. Cub Scouts are given a derby kit, and they are encouraged to build and design their own derby car any way they would like, within the established guidelines. Scouts raced and competed to be the winners in their prospective age brackets. The top three in each age bracket will move on to the Super Derby on April 9 in Frederick.
Windsor Racing participated this year, bringing one of their full-size race cars, which was parked out front of the legion during the Pinewood Derby. Cub Scouts were able to ask questions and get pictures taken with a genuine 1999 Mazda MRX race car. It was one of the highlights of the day.
Congratulations and best of luck to the 18 boys and girls of Cub Scout Pack 270 who will move onto the Super Derby on April 9. Thank you to Windsor Racing and all the adults who volunteered their time to ensure an exciting and safe Pinewood Derby.
