Picture a Pinewood Derby, only not a "ramped" track and not a Pinewood Derby car!
Throw in a cardboard box, Scout power and imagination, a pit crew and lot's of fun
and you end up with the Indy Cub 500!
**What You Will Need At The Race**
Shoes with laces (important for the pitstop)
Goggles or Sunglasses
Indy Cub Car (made out of a cardboard box)
DON'T FORGET THE SCOUT!!
**Rules of the Race**
1) The scout with the help of his parent(s) will
constrcut a "car" out of a cardboard
The car needs to be big enough for the Scout
to fit in.
2) Once the race begins, the Scouts will run one
lap then make a pit-stop. The pit-stop
will consist of the following:
Clean the windsheild (glasses or goggles)
Change the tires (un-tie & remove shoes, turn socks inside out, then replace &
Refuel (Driver (Scout) drinks 4oz. of water through a straw)
The pit-stop is then finished and the driver returns to the race.
3) The Pit-Stop should consist of at least one Pit Crew member but no more than two
members. The Pit-Crew can be friends or family!
4) The first Scout across the finish line after completing his pit-stop is the winner!
**Construction of the car**
(what you will need)
Cardboard box(es), any size, any shape -
(You can get these from just about
any local grocery store)
Primer (for best painting results)
Paint (spray cans work best)
LOT'S OF IMAGINATION!
LET THE BOYS DO IT!!!
Parent(s) will need to supervise with the cutting and the painting of the box, but the
scouts can do the rest!
Since cardboard tends to soak up the paint, it may be in your best interest
to prime the box before painting!
Good Sportsmanship is EXPECTED from all Scouts and Spectators!
