For extra speed in the Pinewood Derby, rub graphite pencil shavings on the wheels.
That’s what Pack 38 Cub Scout and first grader Clay Knight, 6, said he used on his winning entry during Lawrenceburg annual Pinewood Derby event held last Saturday.
His brother Troy, 9, recommends using extra weights.
“The heavier it is, the faster it will go,” the Emma B. Ward third grader said. “I put quite a few weights on it.”
