Pinewood Derby!

Zach and Jeff have been working on Zach's car for the Boy Scout Pinewood Derby all week!
You start out with a block of wood and cut it into what shape you want.
Then you have to sand it down nice and smooth.

Zach decided to paint his car purple and white.

Jeff drilled out a hole in the bottom and helped Zach fill his car with BB's so it will be heavier to make it go faster. They had to make sure his car was no heavier than 5 ounces.
His is 4.8 ounces.
Then Jeff and Zach polished the axles so the car will go even faster!

Here is Zach's finished car!

Didn't they do a great job!!

Zach is very proud of his car!

The race is Saturday.
Good Luck Zach!!!
