Preparations are underway on the third largest soap box derby in the world, which is happening right here in South Central Kentucky.
The 21st annual BB&T All-American Soap Box Derby will be held this weekend at Phil Moore Park in Alvaton. Today, some of the drivers tested out their derby cars. The primary goal of the soap box derby is to provide young boys and girls with an opportunity to spend time with an adult as they build their racer.
Winners of the local race have a chance to race in the world championship in Akron, Ohio this summer.
