My Son's District Derby Race!

This past weekend I took my son to his Pinewood Derby District Race since he placed first in his local Pack overall and qualified for the District Race.  My husband could not be with us for the races because he was coaching soccer games all morning for our 3 oldest.  My son missed a part of his game to check in at the derby race in time. 

My son's car in on the far left lane getting ready to race in one of the many heats. 

After 4 heats, his car was in the Top 15 and he ended up winning 2nd place against all other WEBELOS II scouts in the District!  He was very excited and happy that he did better than last year's District race!  It was a fun morning watching alot of fast cars!

Here I am with my youngest daughter and son.  Grandpa and Nana came to cheer him on which made the day special.

Wow, that brought back some memories of PinewoodD Derby's with our three boys. We had so much fun at these events. Loved the pictures!

Hi LeAnn!

Thanks for stopping by to comment :) That's neat you were able to share similar memories with your sons! It is alot of fun to watch the cars speed down the track :)

Congrats to your he willing to pass on some pointers to us, for the last two years we have come in pretty darn close to last place. Thankfully my son is not really all that bothered by it but I don't see that lasting for long.

Great job constructing a great racing derby car:)
