Big fun last night at the Arkansas Times Rock Candy 500, our second edition of an all-ages Pinewood Derby race for model car lovers. That's William Purifoy, clutching his speedy "Viper," which won the first-place trophy. I was fond of the UPS truck-styled entry shown below. My own new entry was becalmed on the track on account of a design flaw on its initial run, but a pit stop at least made it capable of completing the length of the course. Enough said about that. The event at the River Market Pavilion was a benefit for the Centers for Youth and Families' Scout troop, whose members helped stage the event.
