Cub Scouts from across Kosciusko and Whitley counties gathered at the North Webster Community Center March 10 to race wooden cars for the Lincolnway District Pinewood Derby Championship. The boys received their car kits in December-a rectangular block of wood, four nails and four wheels; the car must be shaped, the wheels attached and aligned, and the car brought up to the allowed weight. Each Scout raced his car four times down the computer-timed, aluminum track; the times averaged to determine winners. Aaron Fryback, Webelos Scout from Leesburg Pack 3729, won the event; his car traveled the track in 3.9786 seconds. Brandon White, Wolf Scout from Syracuse Pack 3828, was second at 3.9805 seconds. Peyton Zellers, Webelos Scout from Warsaw Pack 3772, came in third with a time of 3.9896 seconds.
