ROGER JOHNSON, winner of Cub Scout Pack 1548's Pinewood Derby competition
What grade are you in? Second.
So, Roger, how long have you been in Scouts? Just this year. I'm a wolf.
How much time did you spend working on you car in preparation for the race? Five hours.
Did you do any testing? Yes, and it did great.
Roger, you went undefeated all night and put on an inspiring display of good sportsmanship. Is racing in your blood? Yes, because my favorite thing is the car race.
What's the most important thing if you don't win? Just still have fun because we're all winners.
You won the 1548's championship tonight Roger and now it's off to the district meet. How does that make you feel? I feel especially good.
Anybody you'd like to thank tonight? I'd like to thank Miss. D for being my Scout leader, and that big guy up there [Don Driscoll], who helped me fix my car, and my parents for letting me join the Cub Scouts.
That's an interesting color scheme for your car. Where did the inspiration come from? Red, white and bluethe colors of the American flag.
So where did the green come from? I don't know. I just wanted to add some.
(Roger went on to a third-place finish in the district competition Saturday.)
