JERSEY SHORE - Even with temperatures in the mid 90's, kids from Cub Pack 116 in Jersey Shore enjoyed an afternoon of racing during their annual Cubmobile Race last Saturday.
Ten pack members participated in this year's race, held on the hill on Thompson Street in front of the Jersey Shore Middle School. Only six of the original 25 cars are left since the first race was held in 1986.
For Cub Master Traci June this is a nostalgic event.
"The cool part about this is that my brothers raced these cars 20 years ago and now my son is racing them," said June.
For Christian Aldenderfer, 7, a second grader at Salladasburg Elementary School, this year the experience was a bit scary, since he had never raced before.
"I felt pretty good. It felt like I was a little frightened," said Aldenderfer.
Two brothers went up against each other in the first round - big brother Lee Springman, 9, raced his little brother Luke, 7, both from Avis.
"I just wanted to beat him and I did," boasted the elder Springman.
According to June, the kids are all taught safety and how to stop and steer the cars. Seat belts are used as well as the mandatory helmets. There are no winners or losers, it's just a day for the kids to have fun, she said.
