Soapbox Derby

The Greater Washington Soapbox Derby Association held its annual soapbox derby race on June 18th, on Constitution Avenue by the Capitol. It’s a two-block downhill stretch, with racers coming to a gradual halt when the road becomes flat. Since the area is under the jurisdiction of the Capitol Police, it requires a Congressional resolution each year in order to run. The winners in each category go the the soapbox national competition in Akron.
