I call them “wide bodies”
These soap box derby racers have a driver, usually a past derby champion or veteran racer and a very enthusiastic passenger who gives the orders, makes the calls as heats are run. The big race for Maine, the entire state, is June 19th. For more on the race, visit the Northern Maine Soap Box Derby site…and our new Maine Soap Box site.

Since 1996 the Maine soap box derby program in Houlton Maine has grown leaps and bounds. For five years running, the Aroostook County race was the nation’s largest. And its all due to 60+ dedicated local individuals, local businesses that get behind the race year after year. So kids can know the “thrill of the hill” experience. The race is run on a specially engineered course built from stratch. Derby Hill was literally made from a mole hill in to a mountain! Check out a video of the race.
