Sorry to report, we are officially postponing the SBD race until next Saturday. With the forecasted rain tomorrow and the design of the Red dog course, all the water pools in the runout area which makes it difficult for braking. Drivers and Teams should contact CSBD at email@example.com to verify that they can still race next Saturday. Check-in for all drivers should be no later than 8 a.m. on June 27.
We do race in the rain. If it gets bad, we may switch the format to a single elimination race, which goes faster and less racing for all the kids. We do not anticipate postponing the race. Sunday is Father's Day and we would lose many of our entries. Same for holding it the following weekend. Keep watching the website and Facebook for any new developments. Also, if you have committed to racing with us tomorrow, I ask that you please show up. We are at the mimimum level of racers to send the winners to Akron. If you don't show up, you will disappoint the other kids who do and will lose out on their chance to go to the All-American Soap Box Derby. Thanks!
6 days until the Derby and we're happy to report, we do have enough cars in each division to qualify for Akron. Thanks to everyone who recruited drivers for us.
Latest update. This morning we were down to 7 drivers for the Super Stock division (We need 12). Just got word that one of our drivers recruited a friend. We still need 4 more drivers age 9 or over to sign up at cincysbd.com
At this point, we do not have enough drivers for a SuperStock field. 8 confirmed, possibly 10 but we need 12. We have cars. Anyone know any 9-13 year olds who want to race on June 20?
This is for NEXT year, not this year. The 2016 FirstEnergy All-American Soap Box Derby will be held Saturday, July 16. Race week will begin July 10. Sound earlier than usual? It is. Here's why... The Republican National Convention will take place in Cleveland, July 18-21, 2016. We didn't want to risk overlapping major events and running into issues with hotels, transportation, and more in the northeast Ohio area. We're letting you know early so can plan ahead too.
Thank you WLWT Channel 5. 19 new drivers signed up since your story aired!
Good morning, I wanted to get a headcount for the June 20th race. We are required to have 12 cars minimum in each division so we will need to recruit drivers. Please get back to me ASAP to let me know who will -- or will not -- be racing. Thanks!
Who's racing on Sunday?
