It’s time to start your engines because the WHITTLEMANIA: 6th Annual Coolfire Media Pinewood Derby is happening! Traditionally, the pinewood derby is a racing event for Cub Scouts to build and race their own cars made from a block of wood.  Coolfire Media took this concept and created a crazy, booze-filled version for adults.

Each year, companies from all over St. Louis come together to raise money for The Ad Club of St. Louis Scholarship Fund. For their entry fee – and donation to the fund – they get a block of wood and a blank slate to sculpt their car.  Some agencies enter in the Race or the Show competitions or in both.  Two years of hard work finally paid off, when Abstrakt had a taste of victory last year by winning “Best Themed Pit Crew.”  This year we are going for the gold to win the Best In Show award with our car, “The Deathmobile.”
