About the All-American Soap Box Derby
It’s been called everything from the “Greatest Amateur Racing Event in the World,” to the “Gravity Grand Prix,” but to the more than one million kids who have been participating in the Soap Box Derby during the past 75 years, the event spells fun. Akron, Ohio-headquartered All-American Soap Box Derby, founded in 1933, is one of the most established grassroots youth and family organizations in the United States. An official youth initiative of NASCAR, the All-American Soap Box Derby sanctions races year round in 170 cites and communities in the U.S. and overseas. In the past 10 years, overall race participation (ages 8-17) has doubled, with approximately 45 percent being girls. The All-American Soap Box Derby actively promotes the core values of teamwork, the spirit of competition, perseverance and an emphasis on family.
