Soap Box Derby Race Schedule 2018

Kanawha Valley Soap Box Derby Association provides soap box derby racing for kids ages 7-20 on the only dedicated derby track in the state of WV.  Soap box derby racing first started in our area in 1937 and the track was built in 1969.  We have loaner cars available on a first come, first served basis.  KVSBDA is a sanctioned organization of the International Soap Box Derby and local champs earn a spot each year to go to the All American Soap Box Derby World Championships.  No experience needed as we work with all new racers prior to a race weekend.

WV Super Kids is a division of KVSBDA providing soap box derby races for children ages 7-18 with special needs or disabilities in our community.  Our Super Kids racers have a co-driver that pilots the derby cars, modified for two, so that our Super Kids can still experience the “thrill of the hill”.  Champs can earn a spot each year to compete in the National Super Kids Classic race each year at the All American Soap Box Derby World Championships.
