Am I the only former Cub Scout with fond memories of the Pinewood Derby races? Yeah, I didn't think so. Artist John Wanzel has organized an exhibition in honor of the Derby's 50th anniversary, featuring cars made by 55 local artists. Fast Track: Race Day 2003 is at the 1/Quarterly space in Wicker Park through January 17.
