St. Louis Soap Box Derby

The All-American Soap Box Derby is a youth racing program, which has run nationally since 1934. Hosted by the St. Louis Jaycees, the regional St. Louis race has been held each June on The Hill for more than 15 years.


Winners of each division of the St. Louis regional race are eligible to move on to the World Championship finals, which are held each August at Derby Downs in Akron, Ohio. There, hundreds of kids will compete for one week to crown the All-American Soap Box Derby World Champion.


At the St. Louis Soap Box Derby on June 11, the police department and the fire department will drive adult-size 1930s replica cars in the annual Oil Can race, competing for the coveted traveling trophy.
