This Pinewood Derby Race May Be the Most Epic Ever

It’s the most important race of every boy’s Scouting career. The race where hard work, craftsmanship and speed come together to launch a diminutive champion into the ranks of racing’s elite. It’s the Pinewood Derby. And what may be even more legendary is the Pinewood Derby World Championship where the cream of the derby crop come together for the chance at sweet racing victory.

Stationed in the heart of Time Square in New York City, the 2015 Pinewood Derby World Championship gathered more than 600 Scouts for the first national showdown of its kind. Hailing from all corners of the country, Scouts were hanging from the edges of their seats in anticipation for the Scouting race of the year.

But which Cub Scouts went home with the gold? Find out in the video clip below!
