How can a car without an engine get you all the way to Akron Ohio?  

By being one of the best soapbox racers in the area, that’s how.  Saturday (6/19/18) The 68th annual Lima Soap Box Derby took over North Shore drive and around 30 students competed in the event.  The racer from the age range of 7 to 21 years old can compete in three different divisions to see who has the fastest car. 

Steve Skinner, Organizer, Lima Soap Box Derby "It’s like a  big family event, most of these kids race every year against each other and they love it.  We do have quite of few new racers this year, probably about six or seven of them.  They all seem to be having a great time.” 

The winners from each division will get to race against the top soap box racers from around the world at the All-American Race in Akron end of July.
