OK enough of a rant....each car raced on each lane of the track one time, so each car went down the track 6 times! Williams car finished 6th 4 times, 5th 1 time, and 4th 1 time. Its top speed (we believe, I missed the speed of one race) was 204.3 MPH! One of the boys raced his car, still shaped like the BLOCK OF WOOD and it even beat William's car! For those interested the top car overall went 214 MPH and was supposedly designed by a child in 1st grade! The entire derby took just under 2 hours, as there were 80 heats run! William had a good time, although he got a bit antsy that they "forgot" about his car when it didn't race for over 20 races (a computer program randomly assigned the cars to heats).
William said he is looking forward to designing another car next year.....and hasn't decided what his goal will be...to design a FASTER car or one that comes in DEAD LAST every race!
