ROSSVILLE, Ind. (WLFI) - A Rossville Cub Scout troop raced to see who has the fastest car on Saturday.
It was a strong turnout for Troop 337's Annual Pinewood Derby, in what was a pretty competitive field.
Along with awarding the fastest car, spectators voted for their favorite car.
Cub Scout leaders said the event is a culmination of hard work and a learning experience for the participants.
"There's actually quite a bit you have to do the shaping of the car," said Cub Scout leader Tom St. Myer. "Some of the kids take great pains to make a paint job that is worthy of something you might see in a dealer show room. I'm a little biased because I had two twins in the race, so my favorite cars were those cars."
Prior to the race, a ceremony was held as some Cub Scouts were welcomed into the Boy Scout troop.
