About The Event

Why should kids have all the fun? Our adult only soapbox derby is the only one of its kind in the region and is a fabulous way to show your community spirit. Have you ever dreamed of owning your own NASCAR team? This is your big chance as companies, churches, schools and other organizations build their own cars to compete or sponsor independent teams. What a unique and high impact promotional opportunity!! Local sportsmen can build their own cars, too (refer to the rules page located on here for details)

Race organizers carefully pick two equally matched cars to compete in side by side, do or die heats until a winner is declared. Don’t be surprised if you see a water gun or two or other crazy antics as teams do whatever they can to make it to the end of the race course and to the top of the winner’s podium.

As much fun for the fans as it is for the participants, this events appeals to both young and old and will produce a ton of smiles!
