Pinewood Derby, that is. This weekend, defying the crushing heat, three gentlemen Zoomers competed in the very exciting 2009 Adult Pinewood Derby competition. They handcrafted their wee little cars from a regulation block of wood, then sent them flying down the track to vie for championship status. With sexy results!
Greg’s Subaru, shown here in a diorama that depicts his car’s actual neighborhood habitat, won 2nd Overall and 2nd Coolest.
Kris’s eerily lifelike Jeep (complete with tiny Kris inside) won 13th Coolest.
And Kurtis’s Linux Racer won 7th Coolest, an honor he celebrated by making a commemorative T-shirt to wear to work today.
Congratulations, racers! We applaud your creativity, craftsmanship and speed.
