Cub Scout Pack 79 held its annual Pinewood Derby Jan. 28 in the Henley Middle School cafeteria, forced out of its usual home at Crozet United Methodist Church by the burgeoning number of scouts in the troop.

The winner this year was Ryan Muro, center, with an average track speed of 3.034. Second was Ian Moore, right, in 3.038 and third was Bennette Kim with a speed of 3.07. The three top finishers in each den are also given awards.

Sixty-three cars were entered and each made four runs on the aluminum track to record their average speed. Cub scouts in Pack 79 are students at Crozet and Brownsville Elementary Schools. Last year the troop had 43 scouts, said Cubmaster Kyle Enfield, and this year it has 60.
