Morganton Soap Box Derby
Morganton is located in the foothills of North Carolina. We have a dedicated track at the Burke County Fairgrounds on Bost Road. We hold our race on the first Saturday in May. The Morganton race is sponsed by the Morganton Optimist Club. One of the most important things the club does is working with children. Our main goal is having family fun and building something for the future and what better way to start than with a soap box derby car.
