This weekend is the big event as dozens of area youth put their skills to the test at the 84th running of the Lima Soap Box Derby.

Organizers working to get the track ready on Derby Hill in Faurot Park earlier Friday morning. Unfortunately, it was more work than usual. A portion of the ramps had to be built as the aluminum ramps were stolen sometime since last years race. Also taken were extension cords and speaker wire, but that misfortune won't dampen the race as it's a learning experience and family tradition.

Skinner invites the public out to root the drivers on. The race begins at 8:30 a.m. on Derby Hill which is North Shore Drive between Woodlawn Avenue and Cole Street. The event is free just remember to bring a lawn chair.
