Registration begins for 20th annual Blue Ridge Classic Soap Box Derby
Blue Ridge Soap Box Derby Classic registrations have begun for the annual Soap Box Derby race to be run this year on Saturday, June 1 on 22th Street, between Pine Avenue and Wayne Avenue, in Downtown Waynesboro.
Registrations will be taken until the mandatory clinic on April 3rd. Registration fees are $60.00 for all racers and will be discounted to $50 if registered before April 3rd.
Girls and boys from 7 to 17 years of age are invited to register for the derby either in Stock, Super Stock or Masters divisions by the deadline of April 3rd. The Blue Ridge Soap Box franchise area includes Albemarle, Augusta, Bath, Highland, Louisa, Nelson and Rockbridge counties and the cities therein.
Last year, more than 50 boys and girls raced for the championship in four divisions. These champions went on to represent Waynesboro in the All American Soap Box Derby in Akron in late July.
