Jefferson brings home the trophy!

Last week Jefferson Rupert completed the design of the LEIKINVOLVO.COM Racing Team Pinewood Derby race car. With dark red exterior and plenty of shiny decals, the only thing missing was the classic (and highly sought after) LEIKINVOLVO.COM license plate bracket. Thankfully, custom race car license plate designer and Volvo salesman Andy Rupert came to the rescue and installed one just before the race began.

The annual Cub Scouts Pinewood Derby race took place in the gymnasium of Hale Road Elementary School in Painesville, Ohio. After a first place victory in heat one, Jefferson drove the LEIKINVOLVO.COM entry to two consecutive second place finishes. But when it came to the trophy round for his den, Jefferson's driving expertise was evident. Eye witnesses of the final race verified that The LEIKINVOLVO.COM car crossed the finish line with no other car within ten feet!* It was a fabulous, incredible, awe-inspiring way to finish off the day!

Congratulations to Jefferson Rupert and sponsor LEIKINVOLVO.COM on a great performance in the 2008 Webeloes Pinewood Derby races!**


* Only two boys from Jefferson's den showed up for the race. So, he raced alone for the final den competition as the other boy had already won a trophy for a third place in the whole pack. All-in-all, he ended up with a 2-2 race record.

** P.S. Did I mention LEIKINVOLVO.COM yet?

ons to the LeikinVolvo.vom team driver, Jefferson Rupert. I heard it on the news here in Australia today and just had to check it out for myself!

Well done.

Now if only we had a leikinvolvo here in Oz!

That should be "congratulations". Not just "ons"

"ons" would be silly.

If business is any better in Tasmania, maybe we should open a branch down under!
