Main Street in front of the Augusta Free Press Publishing headquarters is a racetrack today, with kids in pairs heading down the steep hill at speeds in the 30-miles-per-hour range all morning and most of the afternoon.
Seventy-seven racers are entered in the five derby divisions this year.
That number is down sharply from previous race years.
The five local champions who will be crowned at the end of the day’s action will represent the River City in the All-American Soap Box Derby in Akron, Ohio, on July 26.
