Soapbox Derby

The Soapbox Derby, hosted by the Morton Kiwanis Club, is a coasting race down Plum Street for small, motorless cars. Kids from kindergarten through 8th grade can participate, so build your car and join us! Racers are divided into different classes according to age, and double elimination brackets will assure all contestants race twice. All participants must wear a helmet.
