    The Greater Des Moines Soap Box Derby’s racing season has come to a close, but we aren’t ready to be done racing! Did you miss our Spring Rookie Day in April? Here’s your second chance! The Greater Des Moines Soap Box Derby Association is hosting a Summer Rookie Training and Race on July 27th, at 9 am at the Ewing Park Soap Box racetrack.
    This event is for children (ages 7-18) & their parents to learn the basics of soap box derby racing & test out their driving skills on our dedicated racetrack in Ewing Park with the assistance of current racers & their families. We will have association cars/helmets available for kids to use. This is the perfect opportunity for you to see what derby racing is all about!
    After training, the Greater Des Moines Soap Box Derby will be hosting a Rookie Race for the new rookie drivers to test their skills against each other. The Rookie Training & Race is a free event, and all are welcome!
    The Rookie Training & Race is a great opportunity for new racers to prepare for the 2019 Fall racing season. The Greater Des Moines Soap Box Derby will be hosting a Fall All-American race weekend on Saturday, August 31 & Sunday, September 1 at the Ewing Park Soap Box racetrack.
