What is the Soap Box Derby?

The Soap Box Derby is a family-friendly competition for children age 7-17. Derby racers work with a mentor (usually a parent or grandparent) at weekly build clinics where they build their car and practice racing on the private Arrowhead Ranch track. After weeks of preparation, racers get ready to compete at the Stanwood Camano Soap Box Derby on Father’s Day weekend.

Build Clinics

Build clinics are Thursday evenings at Arrowhead Ranch throughout April and May. This one-on-one time between the racer and their mentor is something both racers and mentors enjoy and look forward to! During build clinics, racers learn STEM skills and how to work with tools as they build and customize their cars. Once their car is put together, racers get to practice racing down the paved 800 foot track.

Race Day

Race day is held at Arrowhead Ranch on the Saturday of Father’s Day weekend every year. This is an exciting and fun-filled day for racers, mentors, volunteers, and spectators! We run over 200 races in one day, beginning at 9 a.m. and finishing around 4 p.m. Our racers compete in either the stock or super-stock division based on their age. The winner in each division gets an all expenses-paid trip for themselves and their mentor to the National Soap Box Derby Race in Akro, Ohio!

A message from the All-American Soap Box Derby

The Soap Box Derby is a youth racing program which has run nationally since 1934. World Championship finals are held each July at Derby Downs in Akron, Ohio.

The idea of the Soap Box Derby grew out of a photographic assignment of Dayton, Ohio, newsman Myron Scott. He covered a race of boy-built cars in his home community and was so impressed with this event that he acquired a copyright for the idea and began development of a similar program on a national scale.
