to everyone at Great Big Island
name is Matt and I am 13 years old. I am very involved in pinewood
derby car racing. I attend competitions with my Dad constantly.
We were at an event last weekend when this kid beat me by two
car lenghts. His car was so cool. I went over and looked at
it after our time trials, it was a nice piece of work. He said
he made it himself but I bet his Dad helped him out.
we were talking about car designs and he mentioned www.abc-pinewood-derby.com.
I came home and ran upstairs to my computer to look you up.
Dad and I are always trying to perfect my pinewood racecar.
It is fun working on it out in the garage. My mom even helps
sometimes. Mostly by bring us sandwiches and soda. We decided
to go ahead and order a book from you for more hints and tips
on getting faster. We haven't been disappointed, I actually
decided to build a new car using one of your designs. The instructions
were easy for my Dad and me to follow and I got a lot of good
advise on building in the process. I think I have got the best
and fastest pinewood derby car in town now.
are off to our first pinewood derby race with my new car next
weekend. My older sister helped me paint it red and we put
the number 8 on the side so I could be like Dale Earnhardt
Jr. Mom took a picture of me in the new derby car we built
and painted. I got two copies of it so I could send you one
to post on your website, www.abc-pinewood-derby.com.
I think number 8 is going to be coming in first a lot this
