2nd Rossland leaders with the winning 2nd Rossland Kub Kar winners

Fastest in the pack

By Shanna Tanabe

It was a Rossland sweep at the annual Kub Kar Rally.

All three top spots in the Kub Kar races at the Waneta Mall in Trail on April 20 were nailed down by 2nd Rossland Cub Scouts.

Chance Marion, Andrew Sibbald and Emry McGill finished first to third, respectively, in the annual dash down the track.

The main event was the Kub Kar races but there were also Scout semi truck races and Beaver buggy races held this year. There were over 40 Kub Kars racing on Saturday.

Many of the 2nd Rossland Cub Scouts were among the top 10 finishers in this year’s race.

Thanks to Fred Fontaine who was in charge of organizing 2nd Rossland’s Kub Kar building this year.
