INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - It's the tallest, longest and fastest pinewood derby track, and Saturday the Boy Scouts hosted a pinewood derby race on it at the Indiana State Museum.
The race was open to anyone but pinewood cars had exact specifications to be eligible to race. The scout office was there to inspect and judge the cars and hold timed trials.
It all culminated to a trophy awards ceremony at the end of the day.
"It's still for everyone, a bonding experience, and helping to get that original block of wood, shape it, paint it, design it, test it to make sure it goes and then bring it here and so our track is supersized – it's 125 feet long," said Carrie Miller with the Indiana State Museum. "So to go from a regulation scout track to the museum's track is impressive to see."
The fun continues Sunday with a fun run at the museum. Anyone can come out and bring a car – they won't be inspected or timed – it's all for fun.
The museum has plenty of cars available to borrow.
