And the winner is....

ZANE!  Yes - finally - Zane won 1st place overall at his Pinewood Derby!  That had been a goal since day one....with Daddy (former Pinewood Derby champ himself) researching all the best ways to gain speed, Zane spent hours and hours sanding, painting, polishing, and polishing, and polishing - until the car was perfect.  And the work paid off.  With a blistering top speed more than 0.2 seconds faster than the next fastest car, it was a dream come true for Zane.

I am so proud of all the work he put into it and so enjoyed seeing Bennett and Zane spending time together...but I am especially glad that Bennett made Zane do the vast majority of the work.  Aside from using the scary band saw, Zane built that car from the ground up.

Way to go, Zane!  Look out Pack 11 Cub Scouts - he still has one more year to race!
