Nearly 100 Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts, as well as a contingent of the NASCAR-family kiddos, battled Saturday for the right to be called champions at Atlanta Motor Speedway as they raced their handmade pinewood derby cars down a 30-foot track in front of Petty Grandstand. The competition was hosted by Sprint Cup Series team owner Ray Evernham and NASCAR broadcaster Mike Joy, and every scout received a certificate and T-shirt that said "I raced at Atlanta Motor Speedway."
In the NASCAR families division, Christian Yates raced his No. 28 to victory over John Hunter Nemechek's No. 78 Furniture Row entry in the first annual Motor Racing Outreach and Speedway Children's Charities autotrader.com Pinewood Derby event. Scott Joy's Jayski.com No. 7 was third and Skylar Riggs' No. 66 ended fourth. Macy Waltrip, Layne Riggs, Todd Gilliland and Emilia Reutimann also competed, racing cars that they had built with their dads.
