Streamlined Racing Program
Promised for Soap Box Derby
A streamlined racing program
was promised today by officials
planning the 1949 Washington
Soap Box Derby July 9
Committee members said heats
of three cars each would start
down the track every two minutes
during the elimination rounds.
A spokesman predicted the en
tire race would take less time this
year, despite the fact that a record
number of entries will be "ready
to roll" when the starter's gun
gets the eighth Washington Derby
underway about 10 a m.
Present plans call for the feature
race for the city championship to
start about 4 p.m.
The spokesman pointed out that
at Akron, Ohio, scene of the
annual All-American Soap Box
Derby, heats are run every 90
seconds. Derbies with as many as
150 contestants are staged in less
than five hours.
“Although we haven't all the
facilities available at Akron, we
plan to get each race under way
almost as fast as they do at the
national derby," the spokesman
said. “Plans have been made on
a split-second schedule. There will
be no delays.
“We are confident this year’s
race will be the most enjoyable
ever both for the contestants and
the spectators.”
Meanwhile, letters are being
sent to the more than 200 race
drivers telling they must have
their coaster ears finished by
The cars must be in the hands
of the Chevrolet dealers with
whom the contestants registered
by that day.
After the drivers have taken
their cars to the dealers, the Derby
Committee will have the gravity
powered vehicles delivered to the
National Guard Armory, where the
ears will be Inspected.
Inspection sessions will be held
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday
The same letters notify each
driver when to appear to be
weighed-in and to receive his
racing helmet and Soap Box Derby
Cars will be taken to “Derby
Downs" — Pennsylvania avenue
S.E. between Branch and Alabama
avenues—early Saturday.
The committee said the follow
ing additional entries have been
received at Derby headquarters:
Alfred Lane, 14. of 1708 V street
N.W.; Victor Rosenberg. 11. of
1474 Columbia road N.W, and
Harry Hart. 15. of 5207 Sheridan
street N.W.
