Soap Box Derby - updated

When I was a kid we didn't have any fancy starting set up. We just found a hill and we were off.

Now a days there is a racing circut for the derby.This was the final , two brothers racing for the championship.

I wonder if it Is as much fun as we had racing down hills with no adults. Just kids having fun.




The one on the right won by 3/100 of a second.



I think we had more fun building our own from what ever we could beg, borrow, or steal. The wheels might fall off half way down the hill, or the steering would fail and we would hit a tree but we weren't coddled and we learned to be independent.

Lose the protectionist adults and bring on the fun!
