For the first time, the fathers of Cub Scout Pack 229 in North Barrington found themselves competing in the annual Pinewood Derby races alongside their kids.
For the competition this year, fathers of the scouts crafted wood cars from scratch and raced them down a four-lane track Sunday at North Barrington Elementary School, 24175 N. Grandview Drive.
The need for speed was fast tracked on Tuesday in Glenview at the Cub Scout Pack 154 Pinewood Derby at St. Catherine Laboure Catholic Church.
