Overview

Can a person race a car without an engine? You sure can. With the help of gravity and unique car design, soap box derby stock car drivers get to experience the thrill of the race. In 1914, Charlie Chaplain's movie "The Kid Auto Races at Venice" exposed Americans to the sport of soap box derby racing. Kids began racing cars whenever they could. When a newspaper photographer organized a race in 1933, the sport really took off. Readers learn about the races, heroes, scandals, and intense competition in this sport for kids and teens. A glossary, color photographs, and fact boxes round out this exciting book.
