Red Ant with Pincers and Row had their picture taken here. This is a photo of Row that can go onto the blog since it doesn't show his entire face.
There were 64 cars and almost all of them looked great. I was selected as a judge and the five of us picked out the best original car, funniest, and best representation of Cub Scouts. Row's car is #48 which is the lower right one. He finished 2nd on track 3, second on track 2 and first on track 1. His car averaged about 3.4 seconds per race. He was so excited to finish first, and I'm thankful that he did so well on the last race. It was a great way to end his circuit. He also got to race against his best friend on the last race too, and it was cool to see them both excited.
The race results were projected on a big screen behind the track and display case. It was also electronically timed to 5 digits. The fastest car this year had a time of 3.0812 - and it was burning up the track! Incidentally, the father of the cub scout car happened to be a coworker that I worked with at my very first job. We are going to catch up at one of the later pack meetings. He kinda took me under his wings so to speak, and we hung out at work and after work too. I think I got my first beer buzz with him.
These guys catch the cars at the end of the track.
I do have a few ideas for next year :-)
