Welcome to the New Brunswick Soap Box Derby Website. The mission of the New Jersey Soap Box Derby Racing Association is to help promote and publicize all forms of Soap Box racing throughout the state of New Jersey. New Jersey features many races throughout the state. Currently the New Brunswick race is the only official sanctioned race by All American Soap Box Derby with winners advancing to Akron, Ohio for the International Soap Box Derby Championship.
The New Brunswick derby features 5 divisions of racing to include: Stock, Super Stock, Masters, Super Kids, and Adults. The New Brunswick race is annually held on the first full weekend in June. This year the New Brunswick Derby will be held with practice and racing all in the same day on Saturday, June 3rd at 8am.
Stock, Super Stock, and Masters Division participants will need to report on Saturday morning for inspections and practice on the hill at 8am. The New Brunswick Derby will begin at 11am. This event is a double elimination event which guarantees all entries will race a minimum of four runs on the hill.
The New Brunswick race also features Super Kids racing for special needs students from around the state. Any special needs student in the state of NJ under 100 pounds is encouraged to experience Super Kids racing free of charge. Johnson & Johnson, NC & Sons, Amerihealth NJ, and Turtle & Hughes have built four cars for this opportunity. Each Super kids car fits two drivers. Many of our past champions have volunteered to assist special needs students on Sunday for this experience. Any special need student can share the experience free of charge.
