South Placer Soap Box Derby Oct. 22-24

Please Join Us OCT. 22-24, 2010 in Lincoln, CA (Omega Way)

This year the National Down Syndrome Coalition has been chosen as the beneficiary for this event.  This will be a very exciting event for the families of Northern California and one you don’t want to miss!  A new addition to soap box racing is the SUPER KID car.

The National Super Kids is a nationwide program to promote Soap Box Derby racing for children with disabilities.  There will be a few cars available at the race for our children to participate with.  So please don’t miss out on this great opportunity.

The Soap Box Derby is a youth racing program which has run nationally since 1934.  Every year, kids from all over the country build simplified cars built from kits and race them in local races, such as the event that will take place in Louisville in June.  The race cars are powered by gravity and are timed as they roll down either a dedicated track or a temporary street circuit.  The goals of the Soap Box Derby program have not changed since it began in 1934. They are to teach youngsters some of the basic skills of workmanship, the spirit of competition and the perseverance to continue a project once it has begun.
