With the wave of a virtual checkered flag, Powhatan’s Pinewood Derby features great looking cars and suspenseful finishes – with first and second-place finishers just hundredths of a second apart!
Several dozen Cub Scouts from across Powhatan delivered their hand-crafted cars to the district’s state of the art racing facility – and home of Racemaster/Scouter C.J. Takacs. C.J. and his dedicated one-person Scout-led pit crew, setup races for all participating Lions, Tigers, Wolves, Bears, Weebs and Arrow of Light Scouts.
Using split-screen technology, viewers were treated to a great virtual Pinewood Derby experience, and the first in Powhatan’s history. With views of the starting gate, mid-track and finish-line, every Powhatan parent, Cub Scout, family member and friend had great seats for every race.
Who won? To find out, check out the event on YouTube. Watch all the races, or just a few! Be sure not to miss the virtual Concours D’Elegance – highlighting the designs and artistic skill of Powhatan Cubs – at the end of the video.
