Collaborate & Create!

The Corporate Derby Challenge™ 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. Teams work 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.

June 22, 2023 – Unveiling Event

An evening unveiling will be held on Thursday, June 22, where teams will reveal their Corporate Derby Challenge car. Attendees will enjoy appetizers, spirits, entertainment, and Soap Box Derby Hall of Fame and Museum cars dating back to the 1930s. Casual attire and flat shoes are recommended for this evening event. Trophies will be awarded to the 1st and 2nd place teams for the best-designed/decorated car.

June 23, 2023 – Race Day

On Friday, June 23, the activities will consist of trial runs for the teams, tailgating, food trucks, and Corporate Derby Challenge competition. Invite your friends, family, and co-workers so they can cheer your team to victory and participate in some of the activities.
