4th Annual Soap Box Derby
June 16, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The 4th Annual Ohio Valley Soap Box Derby will be held in Glen Dale, WV on June 16, 2018. This is an activity of the Ohio Valley Soap Box Derby Inc. and covers Wetzel, Marshall, Ohio county in West Virginia and Belmont county in Ohio.
This year we will have at 31 entries in two divisions (Stock, and Super Stock.) from all over the Ohio Valley. The winners will be sent to Akron, Ohio in July to represent the Ohio Valley Soap Box Derby Inc.
Safety is utmost important in organizing a race. We must have a safety boundry on both sides of the track, in order to be in compliance with the rules of the First Engery All American Soap Box Derby. The safety boundry will protect both the participants and the spectators. I am looking for a company that would be interested in providing us a safety boundry whether is would be water barriers, pipe, or hay bales. If you become the safety boundry sponsor your company would have to setup the safety boundry before the race and tear in down after the race. The safety boundry would have to cover 1600 ft. (800 ft. on both sides) I am hoping that there will be a least one company that will consider providing this safety boundry. I hope you will support the Ohio Valley Soap Box Derby.
If interest in becoming the Safety Boundry Sponsor please contact:
