This exciting race is shaping up to be an awesome event! There has been a fantastic response from Southern California Racers and Region 1 (WA, OR, ID) race friends who have expressed plans to participate.   There will be Stock and Super Stock divisions as of right now, and based on registrations/responses we are considering a Masters race as well.

The race is an All American Soap Box Derby Sanctioned Rally, with one Double Elimination race scheduled each day.  We will award trophies deep into all divisions. Although we’re still working on the format, there will be a “run-off” at the conclusion of the race on Sunday to determine the who wins Gold Rush Shootout and takes the Big Prize.

There is a special surprise for everyone who is racing and we’ll let the “cat out of the bag” in the weeks just before the race!
