Saturday, July 8: YMCA Soap Box Races (9 am – noon)

Experience the thrill of racing down the hill in front of the Downtown Y! Kids and “kids at heart” are all invited to participate. Taking place on 9th street from First Baptist Church past the Downtown Y in an all out race for 1st! Kids signed up for the event will be required to attend a practice session earlier that week to learn how to safely and efficiently operate the Soap Box Car.

3 Divisions:

  • Super Stock- Kids ages 7-12- These kids will learn before the races in a practice session to drive and how to FLY down the hill!
  • Super Kids- Special Needs kids- These kids will be in one of our specially designed cars that have a driver, and one of the kids gets to ride along and experience the joy of racing down the hill!
  • Build Your Own- There are only a few rules, so let your imagination run wild!

Using standardized wheels with precision ball bearings, modern gravity-powered racers start at a ramp on top of a hill, attaining speeds of up to 25 miles per hour.

Each heat of a race lasts less than 30 seconds. Races are double elimination races where a racer that loses a heat can work their way through the Challenger’s Bracket in an attempt to win the overall race.

Races begin at the top of the hill in front of the First Baptist Church, race down in front of the Downtown Y, and end a block down the road.
