Wichita Falls, TX - The YMCA Soap Box Race, once a regular event for the Wichita Falls YMCA, was officially re- instated in the summer of 2009 after decades of absence. The crowd enjoys the “Street Party” atmosphere, and all eyes are on the local kids who race down the 9th Street hill in front of the Downtown YMCA. The race also includes a Super Kids Division, a derby division designed for special needs children, with specially designed two seated cars for each child and their escort. In 2012, The YMCA introduced an adult racing event to the traditional Soap Box Derby. The “Build Your Own” Challenge gives individuals, families, social groups and businesses a chance to race outrageous, creative cars they build themselves.
