Lynchburg Area Cub Scouts Race at Pinewood Derby

Lynchburg, VA - The Cub Scouts from Timberlake Methodist Church held one of their biggest events of the year Saturday.

Scouts from Pack 48 competed in the annual Pinewood Derby.

Forty members designed, built and painted their own cars, then got to see them race down the track in eight different races.

Students at Randolph College taught the scouts the science behind it all.

Organizers say the goal is to teach them physics in a fun way.

In March, Pack 48 will take part in a district derby at Randolph College.
