Auburn Cub Scout Pack 53 held its annual Pinewood Derby at the Auburn Mall on March 22. Every year, scouts everywhere pick up their Pinewood Derby car kit and begin customizing what they hope will be the fastest car of the year.

The cars must meet certain weight and size requirements, but otherwise the sky is the limit as far as design.  As you can see from the photos below, the boys come up with some creative and stylish results.

This year’s champ is Jack Gowaski, a fifth grader at Pakachoag School.  Thank you to Diane Keyes and Sheila Gowaski for the photos.
