Conicelli Autoplex Sponsors The 65th Conshohocken Soap Box Derby

The 65th Conshohocken Soap Box Derby will be held on Monday, July 4, 2016 at 8:00 am on Fayette Street, rain or shine. Conicelli Autoplex of Conshohocken is proud to sponsor this event, which will feature 15 Stock and 14 Super Stock racers.

The All-American Soap Box Derby, "The Greatest Amateur Racing Event in the World," is a youth gravity racing program for boys and girls ages 7 through 18 years old. The goals of the Soap Box Derby have not changed since it began in 1934: to promote families working together, to teach children some basic skills of workmanship along with the spirit of competition and the perseverance to continue a project to completion.  Across the United States and around the world, families spend time together building Soap Box Derby cars. Lifelong bonds are developed as the "Derby Experience" is shared. The Soap Box Derby is a program that will provide cherished memories for a lifetime.

Last year’s winners were Kayla Czukoski in the Stock category (age 7-13) and Liam Donovan in Super Stock (age 10-18). Liam want on to place third in the World Championship in Akron, Ohio.

It will be a full day of family-oriented fun with food, refreshments, games, exhibits, and most importantly, the 65th edition of a perennial Conshohocken event, proudly sponsored again by Conicelli Autoplex. Good luck to all the racers!
