A Soapbox sneak peek
Last May the Soapbox Derby in Amarillo was revived for the first time in more than 25 years. Despite dodging raindrops, the event, with approxmiately 22 cars, was a great success for the first year.
It's scheduled again for this year on NW 24th, but for any drivers and parents interested, it would be a good idea to make a stop Saturday at the Street Toyota-Scion on 4500 S. Soncy (say that fast three times) for an assembly party.
Organizers, led by the enthusiastic Wayne Osteen, will be available for 9 a.m. to noon to answer questions, to demonstrate technique and to hand out information. It's a great little one-on-one seminar for those thinking of racing in the real thing in May.
In addition, there's free food and drink as well as a live radio remote. Plus, it's all inside Street's expansive layout.
