Fourth Annual Madison Avenue Soap Box Derby


This unique non-motorized racing event challenges amateur racers to design and build gravity-powered soapbox cars to compete against the clock in a downhill race. Not to be confused with the National All-American Soapbox Derby, The Madison Ave. Soapbox Derby is a race for amateur drivers, which is fueled by creativity and family fun.  The Rules and Regulations are not intended to hinder any creativity but rather allow for a safe race for both the drivers and spectators.
