From Wikipedia, “The pinewood derby is a racing event for Cub Scouts in the Boy Scouts of America. Cub Scouts, with the help of parents, build their own cars from wood, usually from kits containing a block of pine, plastic wheels and metal axles …”
The Stumptown 40 is a lot like a Pinewood Derby, but instead of boys creating cars from blocks of wood, it’s Portland’s creative types. And instead of a church gymnasium, the Stumptown 40 will be held at Spirit of 77 (where a full bar is available). Car kits are $25 (price includes event admission).
