Robby Seitz, 10, of Poland was among the 23 competitors in this year’s Cars in the Park Pinewood Derby race in Boardman Park on Sunday. Seitz was accompanied by his mom Rose as he registered for the dual elimination race.

The car he was racing is actually one that had in the family for a few years.

“He is racing his brothers’ car,” Rose said. “His brothers Freddy and Jonathan were both in Cub Scouts.”

Robby too was in Scouts and was used to Pinewood racing. He has raced Pinewoods since he was in first grade. This fall he will enter the fifth grade at Poland McKinley.

Robby was up against some tough competition and while he didn’t make the top three is his age group, he did take the Town Crier challenge and beat the Pinewood bus that was built by staff members.
