Saturday: Kids Build Their Own Soap Box Derby
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
