Benefits of Sponsorship
The River City Soap Box Derby (RCSBD) has proven to be a fun, exciting and rewarding event for everyone involved. This includes area businesses, event sponsors, spectators, parents and especially our youth who participate as the drivers on race day.
Preparations are now underway for the 2019 season. The River City Soap Box Derby Races are scheduled for Saturday June 8, 2019 in Lakebottom. That’s right – races! There will be two (2) races: an educational race and the inaugural Local Race.
The Local Race will highlight these racers: Mariah, Devon, Savon, Jaylen, Crystal, Leo, Logan, Zyon, Tykerion, Toni, D’Ambri, and Janiah. We’ll track them on their journey to Akron. Only one of them will go. Who are you rooting on? Racers not yet ready for such advanced competition still have an opportunity to race in the educational race. There are 12 slots available in this race. A total of 24 racers will grace the hill of Lakebottom in Midtown on June 8. We need you there!
An amazing time for all will be had. There will be many activities for individuals and sponsors alike.
