Saturday: Kids Build Their Own Soap Box Derby Cars

March 6,  2014
DuBOIS- The DuBois Area Soap Box Derby committee is looking for drivers for our 2014 race season. All Boys and Girls ages 7-18 are welcome to join our team. They have four divisions: Stock, Super Stock, Masters, and our Super Kids Classic.

This weekend they are having a special event at Johnson Motors starting at 7 am,  a car build clinics for all new drivers to get hands on experience of building a Soap Box race car. A member of the committee Erica Wayt said it’s a great time to come sign up for the race team where the kids will get to build a soap box race car. The race registration fee is $35 and the car is free.

They have a new venue this year.  The race will be held on June 21, behind Wal-Mart on Industrial Drive near Fed Ex.

They will hold initial inspections and final inspections prior to the race to ensure safety. Trial Runs are held for drivers to take a half run and a full run on the hill. All cars are locally sponsored.

The Super Kids Classic will be held at the opening of the race day. Our Super Kids coordinators are looking for children with special needs, ages 8-18.

Our Super Kids “co-pilot” a two person car with a qualified driver. Winners of the Super Kids get to participate in the National race in Akron, OH. Two years ago one of our very own local racers, Matthew Coulter, placed second at Nationals. Come join our team.
