-- The Soap Box is a youth soapbox car racing program which has been run in the United States since 1934. In 1933 Myron Scott, a photographer for Dayton, Ohio newspaper Dayton Daily News, put together an impromptu race for 19 boys. There was so much interest that Scott arranged a bigger race, with prize money for August 19. An amazing crowd of 362 kids showed up with homemade cars built of orange crates, sheet tin, wagon and baby-buggy wheels.... Source

-- 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.
