long standing tradition continues Saturday in Morganton as the State
Championship Soap Box Derby races were held.
Dozens of competittors from across the Carolinas
competed in the downhill racing. The track at the Burke County Fairgrounds in
Morganton is one of the few active soap box derby tracks left in the Carolinas.
Winners from these races would go on to compete in the nationals in Akron,
Ohio. Officials say the tradition of Soap Box Derby is important because it
brings families together to build the cars and compete.
The cars come from
standard kits and weight is adjusted depending on the driver so all cars racing
are equal. Speeds can reach 30 to 35 miles per hour on the track.
The winners on Saturday:
Stockcar winner: Isaac Parker Clover, SC
Superstock Winner: Samantha Puett Morganton, NC
Masters Winner: Kristina Jones Charlotte, NC
All three will compete for the national championship
in their division.
