Soap Box Derby
The International Soap Box Derby, Inc. is an Akron, Ohio-based nonprofit organization, which has run the All-American Soap Box Derby nationally since 1934. Children between the ages of 7-20 are eligible to race in the program. Kids, along with a parent, mentor, etc., build a car using a specially designed kit. Races are held each year in officially sanctioned Soap Box Derby race locations throughout the United States and a few foreign countries. The racing season culminates at the FIRSTEnergy All-American Soap Box Derby World Championship Race, held each July at the world-famous Derby Downs Track in Akron, OH.
