Pinewood Derby

Jackson had his first Pinewood Derby with the Boy Scouts earlier this month and it was so much fun. Jake and my Dad helped Jackson make the car. It had to be a Super Hero theme so Jackson picked Iron Man. My dad cut the car out and then spray-painted the car red. We added Iron Man stickers to give it the Super Hero theme and it turned out very cool.

Each Den races their cars against each other and then whoever wins 1st and 2nd place in each den has to race in the final heat at the end of the day. Jackson's car came in 2nd and 3rd in every race it ran, but ended up tying for 3rd place in the end. His race time overall was just slightly lower than the car he tied with so he came in 4th place in his den. He even won a trophy!
