It's All About Looking Good!

This is Porter with his surfboard surrounded by wave, sponsored by the Geico lizard, insuring you from shark accidents Pinewood Derby car. His smile says it all.

This is Cooper sporting the newest mascot, The Fairland Dragon. It shines above last year's entry of the Hutto Hippo.

This is Sawyer with his Coast Guard boat, inspiration from the boy's cubscout leader Sean Lewis, officer in the Coast Guard assigned here to keep our own Ohio River safe.

Because the boys are all about show and not winning, Cooper's dragon was a tad bit overweight. The plan was to remove the tail for the race, but sometime between wheels and clear spray coat, the tail apoxied itself into a permanent dragon fixture. Hence, this kind man understood that this race is mostly about getting to race your car on the track, and let Cooper and others race against his dragon just for fun.
The jalopy car Cooper is holding was brought to entertain babies, but ended up being his entry since the dragon was too heavy.

Miller brought Hunter's bobsled car to race just for fun .

For detail enthusists, the head is cut off a three-headed creature from Zach's He-Man collection, and the scales and tail are from a dinosaur.

Incredible imagination! Is there an award for best design? They all look great. I wouldn't know which one to choose as the best.
