After four races (your car runs on each lane of the track), an average of the times are taken to determine the standings. In his age group (Tigers), he placed third and moved on to the grand finals which included the whole pack (Tigers, Bears, Wolves and Webelos), i.e. competing with all of the older kids. Looking at the times of the other groups compared to Tyson's, he didn't stand a chance. Hindsight being 20/20, we should've left after he was done. But no, we waited around for about an hour so that he can race his car in the grand finals. And to no one's surprise, he got dead last... and it wasn't even close. He was bummed out. He didn't cry or anything but got really quiet. It was sad.
