Soap Box Derby Is Saturday

The 13th annual Tullahoma Soap Box Derby will be held this Saturday. 60 boys and girls between the ages of 8 and 17 are making final preparations on their cars to get ready to compete for a shot for the coveted trip to Akron, Ohio, for the 75th All-American Soap Box Derby in late July.
The derby is scheduled to begin at 7 a.m. Saturday.
The race has a double-elimination tournament format, with drivers getting multiple passes on a 1,000-foot downhill stretch.
While the race is in progress, West Lincoln Street will be closed from the North Jackson Street intersection close to the Tullahoma Square Shopping Center.
