Welcome to Lancaster Soap Box Derby
The Lancaster Soap Box Derby is pleased to announce the completion of its 58th year of racing. We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization funded by volunteers and supporters to provide a fun learning experience to the youth of Fairfield, Hocking, Licking, Muskingum, Pickaway, Athens and Perry Counties.
Soap box derby racing is so much more than just letting a car loose to run down a hill. The shy child will come out of his or her shell and all children learn sportsmanship and a sense of pride and accomplishment during this whole process. Another benefit is that this is truly a family sport. This is not one of those sports where your son or daughter is busy and you are just a spectator sitting on the sidelines. How many other sports can say that? While your child may be the driver, it also takes car and driver handlers to get the job done. The best part of it all is when your child crosses that finish line the accomplishment is truly a team effort -- and you're a big part of it!
Boys and girls between the ages of 7 and 17 years of age are eligible to race. Our contestants learn the spirit of racing, the ability to follow instructions and the satisfaction of completing a project from beginning to end. Contestants have the opportunity to win trophies, prizes, scholarships and a chance to compete in the All American Soap Box Derby Championship in Akron, Ohio against competitors from all over the world.
Akron is a week long event of socializing, outings, racing and meeting celebrities.
