Sertoma is known for its dedication to community outreach, primarily in the area of hearing impairments and preventing hearing loss in children. To help with this cause, some cars will be driven by children with hearing impairments or hearing loss. In the past, over half of the cars were driven by children with hearing impairments. The Super Kids division was added in 2008 to our racing format to accommodate participants with challenges who otherwise would not have the opportunity to race.

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.
