The Kendall Toyota of Bend team was excited to break out our Pinewood Derby track to host Cub Scouts from four different packs (Bear, Wolf, Webelo, and Tiger) in a 50+ year signature event. Cub Scouts have carried the tradition of participating in these derbies due to it’s experience of creativity, accomplishment, excitement, sportsmanship, and lots of fun. According to Jennifer Stephens, Cub Scouts Committee Chair, “Cub Scouts put their ingenuity into action by designing and painting Pinewood Derby cars. They do their best to prepare for race day, then show up to cheer on their car and fellow scouts.”

Over 20 Cub Scouts competed in the race and got to watch their cars fly down the track. Judges had the opportunity to vote on their favorite design, as the kids put a lot of thought into what they wanted their cars to look like beyond engineering it. The team at Kendall Toyota of Bend had so much fun cheering them on and were honored to host the event, right in our showroom!
