The United Way Corporate Derby Challenge™, presented by Fallsway Equipment Company, is a high-energy event that ignites a team's competitive fire as they collaborate assemble, decorate, and compete in an entertaining race with their own adult Soap Box Derby car. Corporations, small businesses, groups and community organizations can experience a very unique event that is sure to entertain. 


The Corporate Derby Challenge involves teams working together to assemble their own adult Soap Box Derby car chassis from a pre-manufactured kit provided by the Soap Box Derby. Once the car chassis is assembled, teams can tap into their creativity by decorating and constructing their car wherever their imagination takes them as long as it is according to Corporate Derby Challenge guidelines.


An evening unveiling reception will be held on Thursday, July 13 where teams will reveal their Corporate Derby Challenge car.  Attendees will enjoy appetizers, spirits, entertainment, and will be the first to see the champ cars that will be participating in the 2017 FirstEnergy All-American Soap Box Derby World Championship. Casual attire and flat shoes are recommended for this evening event.

Trophies will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place teams for the best designed/decorated car.


On Friday, July 14, the activities will consist of trial runs for the teams, fun runs, tailgating, food trucks, and the Corporate Derby Challenge competition. Invite your friends and family so they can cheer your team to victory and participate in some of the activities. 

Trophies will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place teams in the race.
