Cub Scout Pack 222 from Mansfield Township held its annual Pinewood Derby on Friday, Jan. 29 at the Mansfield Township Elementary School in Port Murray.
All cars racing in the derby were modeled from Official BSA Grand Prix Pinewood Derby Kits which the Cub Scouts then modeled and painted to their liking. Each car also must pass inspection prior to race night to ensure they meet certain minimum and maximum weights and measurements.
Each car ran in six heats during the night.
