Soap Box Derby – A Risky Event

Soap Box Derbies have become increasingly popular events to hold but with these kinds of events, it is important to know just how dangerous they can be.

For those unfamiliar with what a Soap Box Derby is, it is a youth soap box car racing program that has been run since 1934 in the United States. Soap box cars competing in these events are unpowered, relying completely upon gravity to race down a hill.

Serious injuries, and even deaths have occurred at these types of events so if you are considering holding a Soap Box Derby, you should be aware of just how risky they are.
