"The designs of some of the cars ... it's
interesting that they have that imagination to
put those things together," said NTR
General Manager Jim Layton, indicating a
particularly distinct, albeit less-thanaerodynamic, vehicle being constructed
nearby.
Six-year-old Tyler Frank, of Chicago, visited
The Works on Wednesday with his sister, Addy, and grandparents
Elaine and Andy Starinchak, of Westerville.
He took home the top plaque for his age category and was planning

on purchasing the car he'd built.
Although he's more of a Lego fan than K'NEX, he said, he was
pleased his car had made a speedy debut.
"This has been the best fun," his grandmother said.
Kyleigh Clark, 4, of Newark, was the runner-up to Tyler. She used
large wheels to construct her car and "kept testing it and changing
it" until she was satisfied with the design, said her mother, Krista
Clark.
"It was pretty easy for me," Kyleigh said.
In the older age category, winner Shaylin Wills, 10, of Newark, said
she, too, had undergone several trial-and-error sessions before
constructing the ideal car using four small wheels in a rectangular
configuration with a heavy back end.
"It kept on breaking," she said, adding that a volunteer from The
Works helped her hone the design to its final winning form.
It was her first time competing in Spring Break Nationals, she said.
Her runner-up was 11-year-old Alex Curtis, of Newark.
The event's supervisors were pleased with the turnout and even
admitted to being thankful the snow had kept the young spring
breakers indoors.
"It was a pretty good crowd this time," Layton said.
