Television, Commercials & Movies

California is home to both a large entertainment & film industry and to many great Soap Box Derby resources.  Soap Box Derby racing regularly appears in television commercials/shows, advertisements, promotional videos, and in movies.  Just a few years back, the movie ’25 Hill’ was made telling the Soap Box Derby Racing story and promoting the sport.  If you have a story to tell that involves kids and racing events, we probably can help!
