2013 Adult Soap Box Derby
Saturday, July 20th, 2013

Today was our 5th annual Adult Soap Box Derby held at Sharon Valley Speedway by Veterans' Memorial Field. A field of 26 cars braved the heat for some great side by side racing. We had a brief storm delay right before the Finals as a small Thunder Storm rolled through the starting area bringing a lot of Lightning to that area. It did not rain as thankfully the storm went to the North of us. We saw some of the cars reaching speeds of 48 mph. Below are the results of the racing.
