Cub scouts build Pinewood Derby cars at Steve’s Auto Repair

In Pinewood Derby by Steves Auto Repair and Tire

Pinewood Derby car ideas were brought to life on Saturday.

Local cub scouts participated in a Pinewood Derby workshop that was held at Steve’s Auto Repair & Tire, 2603 Hanco Center Drive.

Belt sanders, a Dremel tool, a drill press, a band saw were used to complete the projects of Cub Scout Pack 1373 in Dale City and Cub Scout Pack 295 in Lake Ridge. Cub scouts is a program that’s available for boys and girls who are between kindergarten and fifth grade.

Our Woodbridge auto repair shop started supporting the pinewood derbies several years ago. This transitioned into hosting an annual Pinewood Derby workshop when we realized that a lot of scouts and parents didn’t have the proper tools.

“We strongly believe in giving back to the community we live and work in,” Steve’s Auto Repair & Tire Owner Scott Whitling said. “By offering this event, we are able to help kids get involved in an awesome non-profit that teaches them many life skills.”

In addition to scouting, Steve’s Auto Repair supports the Prince William County/Manassas Boys & Girls Clubs and The Salvation Army.
