The excitement was in the air as 350 Royal Rangers and family came to watch 240 pinewood derby cars race to the finish line on Saturday, Feb 11th. The Springfield North and South Sectional race was held at Nixa Assembly of God. The two tracks raced each car 3 times down the track and 90 trophies and 240 ribbons were passed out to the racers. Nixa Assembly did a great job of feeding the hungry. Hot dogs and burgers with all the extras were well received by all who lined up for the concessions.  Obie Harrup, Pastor from First Assembly of God in Strafford gave us an inspirational message from the Word. Thank you to Oak Grove AOG and Praise AOG for bringing their tracks. We are now looking forward to the Divisional Race on March 25th at James River AOG in Springfield. Tune up the cars and be “ready” for even more fun at the Divisional Race. See you there!

Dan Rockafellow, Springfield South Sectional Commander
