This year i went movie style with my Pinewood  Car. I themed it after a movie called The Hunt For Red October.   (This is a science fiction movie)  It is set in the cold war. The Russians build a undetectable submarine called Red October. But when they don’t obey the mission plans and try to defect from Russia, all of the Russian Navy and the American Navy are both looking for one undetectable submarine. I thought the movie is really spectacular!!!  It also has great submarine pictures.

Here is my Cheese Wedge car from last year’s race.

Every year the Cub Scouts in my town do a annual car race, called The Pinewood Derby. The boys race cars they have built at home.They also have races for Cub Scout’s siblings.  I have been to a few races myself ,and there is so much creativity in those cars! Here is a Scouting website with great Pinewood Derby car photos.

At the end of racing they announce who will be going on tho the regionals. and if you win the regionals, you go to city, then state. One of my friends went to regionals last year. I heard It was awesome. Good luck to all the future racers!
