Cincinnati Soap Box Derby
Celebrating over 50 years of Gravity Racing in Cincinnati!
The Cincinnati Soap Box Derby is a youth racing program open to any child at least 7 year of age and 17. Children compete by driving their racers in one of two levels of gravity powered racing cars built from kits purchased from the All-American Soap Box Derby. Don't have a Derby car, no need to worry, we have plenty to borrow.
