Looking for a local sponsorship that involves, kids, racing, the "thrill of the hill"?Soap box derby racing has been around since 1934 with the big World Series of downhill side by side car competition in Akron Ohio.
The Houlton Maine race, the nation's largest local soap box derby in the country for five straight years.
On top of Derby Hill, an engineered, built from scratch it's noisy.
With tons of local labor, boat loads of free donations of materials and services, there is now hammering going on.
The new launch/storage of derby hill racing materials garage is under construction.
Now just waiting for exterior siding.
A big check from the Houlton Maine Rotary Club was the spark for all the activity on the top of Derby Hill by volunteer carpenters. All working hard for the latest Maine soap box derby race program improvement to keep the down hill youth car racing program growing, a fun experience. If you are a business, service or civic club, consider sponsoring a Soap Box Derby stock, superstock or masters race car.
