Soap Box Derby
A Sanctioned All-American
Soap Box Derby Race

The Village of Walden will hold its 7th Annual All-American Soap Box Derby in 2011. As we have in the past, both new and experienced racers will have a chance to practice racing and stay informed of the event through this schedule.

The Walden Soap Box Derby will run two divisions this year, Stock & Super Stock. The Stock car division is for ages 8 to 17 years old. And Super Stock, a slightly larger car, for 10 to 17 year olds. Both cars cost about $750 to put on the road and enter the races. Go to for details about purchasing a new car kit. If you have questions about purchasing a car kit, call 845-778-2177. The web site has information about the Derby’s history, parts catalogue and souvenirs from the All-American Soap Box Derby. Information about rules and regulations, to Race Week in Akron, Ohio, is also listed on their site. Potential sponsors and race families are strongly encouraged to visit their web site and attend the information meeting listed below.

Informational Meeting
As we approach the actual race, details regarding an informational meeting (traditionally held in March) will be made available.
