During the event a people’s choice award will be given out. The public may vote for their favorite cars. This event will go on Rain or Shine.

Adult Soap Box Derby June 16
The 2nd annual Nevada City Adult Soap Box Derby races into town Saturday, June 16th, just in time for Father’s Day weekend. 42 teams of three or more people, racing everything from sleek aerodynamic speed cars to amazing works of art on wheels, will take to the 1/2 mile course down Nimrod Street near Pioneer Park in Nevada City. This family fun event not only brings together local businesses and the community but also raises monies for new projects and amenities in the park for everyone to enjoy.
Last year race organizers expected a modest turn out of 500 people but where blown away to find 4500 people came out to enjoy and support the inaugural event. Over $5000 was raised for the park from sponsorships, concessions, and entry fees.
Registrations for this year’s race sold out in a day and there is now a waiting list. Local businesses that will be participating include Nevada City Adult Soap Box Derby host sponsor AJA Video Systems, Telestream, Ensemble Design, Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital, BYOB, among others.
Make it a weekend! Saturday, June 16th, 2012 is the day before the 52nd Annual Nevada City Classic bike race. This race is the second oldest of it’s kind in the nation. (Previous winners include Greg Lemond, Lance Armstrong, Levi Leipheimer and other top name riders.)
