Pinewood Derby a family event in Austintown

Cub Scouts race their Pinewood Derby cars

AUSTINTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – Cub Scout pack 184 hosted its annual Pinewood Derby at St. Joseph Church Saturday.

About 60 Scouts raced their cars that they have been working on since December.

While technically the event is for Scouts in first through fifth grade, the entire project revolves around the family.

“We open the race up to siblings that the brothers and sisters can participate, and it is like a family effort,” said Rick Larson, Pack 184 leader.

The racers are broken out into different classes. Trophies are handed out for race times as well as design.
