Tallmadge Hill
All American Soap Box Derby Day
-- The Soap Box is a youth soapbox car racing program run in the U.S. since 1934. In 1933, a photographer for Dayton, Ohio newspaper Dayton Daily News (Myron Scott), put together an impromptu race for 19 boys. Due to so much interest Scott arranged a bigger race, with prize money for August 19. An incredible crowd of 362 kids showed up with their homemade cars built of orange crates, sheet tin, wagon and baby-buggy wheels!

Read: Tallmadge Hill: The Story of the 1935 All-American Soap Box Derby, by Ronald Reed
-- Ronald Reed is first, and foremost, a derby fan. Growing up in suburban Akron, he attended his first All American race in 1949 at age seven. Since then he has missed only three. By his personal account, he has witnessed more national derby races than any living person. He never raced as a boy, lacking the skill to construct a racer. As he explains it, The trouble was everything I made looked like I made it. In 1973, Ronald began carving miniature replicas of the top three racers of each year's All-American, dating back to 1933. These cars are currently on display at the derby museum at Derby Downs in Akron.
