Lancaster Soap Box Derby
740-687-4806 (Derby Director, Brian Hunt)
The Lancaster Soap Box Derby is dedicated to teaching the youth of South East Ohio how to become a better, more imaginative, self confident team player, which will prepare them for the future. By working together with their family, friends, and peers in the building and competing of the Soap Box Derby Race Car, today’s youth will learn the power of teamwork, the pride of sportsmanship, and the lessons for life skills.
What you need to do to get started: 1) You need to be at least 8 years old. 2) You must have a parent or guardian to work with you on your car (this is a family sport). 3) Contact Brian Hunt (740-687-4806) or Andy Dum (740-689-9588) so they can get you signed up and get all your paperwork to you, like rules, regulations, order form for your car, etc. 4) You’ll need to get yourself a sponsor. You can have more than one sponsor, there is no limit. You need a sponsor for race day which is $ 75.00, and you need a car sponsor (these are usually the same sponsor). Your car sponsor helps you fund your car. Which, depending on which division you will be racing in (stock, super stock, or master) will depend on the price of your car. 5) Please call or email Brian Hunt or Andy Dum with any questions you may have. The track is located at 3060 BIS Rd. in Lancaster.
