Alex Butts of Pack 106 was really into the races on Jan. 25.

It’s racing season again in Valley Stream. Local Cub Scouts have been taking part in the Pinewood Derby races, an annual scouting tradition.

Pack 106, based in North Valley Stream, held its Pinewood Derby the evening of Jan. 25 at New Hope Lutheran Church. Cub Scouts from Pack 367 were off to the races at Holy Name of Mary School on Jan. 27. This past Saturday, Pack 109 held its derby at Grace United Methodist Church.

Each boy was given a kit, which includes a block of wood and four wheels, then could shape and design their car to their liking, following the official Pinewood Derby rules. At each event, the scouts cheered enthusiastically as they watched their cars head down the track.
