Video of a Super-Fast Pinewood Derby Track

Cub Scouts competing in a pinewood derby in Indiana didn’t get to see much of the action. The giant track made the cars zip by so fast, you could only hear them.

The Crossroads of America Council built the track inside the Indiana State Museum. The track was more than two stories tall and 125 feet long — almost as long as a Boeing 737 airplane.

Use the above player to watch video from the race and check out the article in the December 2008 issue of Boys’ Life magazine for more details.
