NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - Dozens of cub scouts and their parents crammed the cafeteria at Allen W. Roberts Elementary School in New Providence on Friday night to participate in the annual Pinewood Derby. 

Check in for the Pinewood Derby was held the previous night, Thursday, January 30th, at which time all cars were weighed and checked in.  Derby cars were kept overnight and were in lock down status until the race on Friday. A pit crew and tools were available on race day in the event that anyone needed some last minute adjustments to their derby car. 

Scouts wore their class A uniforms for the race. First, second and third place car winners will compete in the District pinewood derby event.
