Today was the big race day, the Awana Grand Prix. Yes folks, this is the "Daytona 500" of pine car races! Abbie's car this year is a 57 Chevy, David's is a 67 Ford Mustang. Though they weren't the fastest cars on the track David's pulled 1st place in design, Abbie's 2nd place. Next year we hope to have the kids doing alot more of the building themselves, with just a little bit of help from mom and dad. Click each photo below for a bigger view:
