Watch the Houlton Maine Soap Box derby video for the Northern ME 15th annual downhill kit car race.
Maine boys and girls ages 8 to 17 learn “the thrill of the hill” with volunteers from Aroostook County helping put the race together year after year on a specially engineered hill at Community Park in Houlton Maine.
Racers from around the state of Maine took part in the only race local that helps select the stock and superstock winners to go on to Akron Ohio to represent the state in the world series of All American racing. Check out the Northern Maine Soap Box Derby race site. Why wait until you are sixteen to drive a car?
