2]GREAT FALLS, MT,USA--The largest pinewood derby track measures
just more than 24 feet tall, and 192 feet long, was designed
by Dean Dunlap and build by The Royal Rangers and Missionettes
of Montana. It is more than 70 feet longer than the track
which previously held the record.

Track designer, Dean Dunlap: "Our decision
wasn't to make a world record breaking track. Our decision
was to do something different out of the ordinary. We started
building. We made modifications and it was someone outside
the organization that suggested we had the record."
Previous record: 21 feet high and 125 feet long,
set Jan. 6 at the Indiana State Museum.
