    Life is all about lessons. Your true character is shown in how you handle defeats. Sounds like your son has a good head on his shoulders. 👍

    I loved the process of making pinewood derby cars with my son. Those memories are priceless. Badass looking car!

    @Derrick thanks dude! And agreed.

    I can remember being in Cub Scouts. My pinewood derby cars never did too well, but I had some fast raingutter regatta boats. That shark design is pretty slick, and it sounds like your son is learning about more than just building pinewood derby cars, too. I’m glad he’s making the most of it.

    One of the most important life lessons is coping with failure, or even rejection. Very important these days!!

    I can remember all those pinewood derbies with both of my sons, loved every moment of them from helping with the designs to racing the cars.
