So being from Detroit, the Motor City, I almost feel obligated to make the trip out to L.A. and race. Although carrying the D on my shoulders probably isn't too great an idea, especially since the last time I even touched one of these cars I was like 9 years old.
For those of you who don't know, Pine Wood Derbies are the nascar of the Cub Scouts. An annual race where all the packs get together to race their wooden cars. I loved the derby. I still remember working with my dad in the basement, detailing all the technical specs that would make my racer the next mach 5. There's nothing like racing something you built. And like Nick says, the derby is "...the most fun activity that lends itself to betting and shit talking..."
So hopefully I'll see some of you out there?
