GENERAL DERBY INFORMATION
The Soap Box Derby is a youth racing program for boys
and girls ages 8 - 17. This is a unique program in that it encourages
close parent-child activities while building and racing the car. The construction
of the gravity race car reinforces the importance of setting and completing
goals while developing traits such as self-confidence, perseverence, and
craftsmanship. Parents can learn new abilities while teaching children
the proper use of tools. The youth is encouraged to do as much of the
work as their level permits.
