Just finished his second Junior Honda A main with a podium finish!!!! 3rd place to two of the baddest assed quarter midget drivers at our track - who both have an engine sponsor, chassis sponsor and corporate sponsors to buy them new tires every week!!! Tommy was racing on tires from last season with at least 6 races on them.

:woohoo:

Thanks both of you...

...not sure if he is racing Sunday or not...his Pinewood Derby car (modeled after Chase Elliott's #9 NW car) is entered in our District Derby (because he finished third - :lol: - at our Pack Derby)....he wants to go there because, in their infinite wisdom, the powers that be have decided if a boy doesn't show up, his car can compete and win, but the Scout cannot get any of the prizes....that would be all well and good - if it had been done in a timely fashion, but our Pack Pinewood Derby was held in JANUARY...

Guess we will see....

;)

He should be very proud...I always compared how I finished to others based on their experience, and tire race count. I did pretty well. Don't let him get discouraged.

Thanks, Tom...

We are having a little trouble with him realizing that he kind of has to run his own race - against the rest of the kids...

so yesterday, for his heat, he was definitely NOT on his game...didn't line up all the way, and fell way behind very early...

we got him all fixed and back on track - only to have the A-mains rained out..

:dunno:

We'll be back at it next week...

On a side note...his Chase Elliott modeled Pinewood Derby car came in 8th of 18 overall yesterday. Thankfully, that was NOT a position to move on - because they would have given it to the 9th place car since Tommy didn't attend. That's not too shabby - considering that my two older boys never even made it to the District race in all their years as Cub Scouts...

;)
