Some people really get into it. They found [on the Internet] that making the wheelbase longer, putting weight toward the back and sanding the nails that hold the wheels worked best.

We wanted to get more of the families involved. Some dads brought in their cars from when they were kids. They found them packed away in an attic. There are still many Pinewood Derby cars hidden in attics and basements across the country that were raced many years ago during the childhood days of many of our great leaders and local community members just waiting to be raced again.
