This year, his car was fast. He won race after race and out of 50+ boys, came in 2nd overall. He was thrilled.
Mark cannot explain the win, as he thinks they did everything about the same both years. Hopefully he will figure out what he did differently because we have 10 more pine wood derbies to look forward to. He is very happy for Jonah this year. It is almost redemption for his own cub scout days when his mom tole painted flames on his first car and they didn't know they could use weights and graphite.
#22, second from left.
The difference between 1st, 2nd and 3rd places was 1/100th of a second.
Cool winner's trophy: his car mounted atop a wrench.
