Dozens of racers from throughout the region rolled onto Camano last weekend for the annual Summer Classic Rally Race. Unlike the annual soap box derby, the rally race program allows racers to earn points by racing in various rally races throughout the United States and Canada.Top point earners in each region are invited to compete in the All-American Soap Box Derby World Championship in Akron, Ohio, in July.
Local rally racers Bella Siddle and Ronan Johnson combined to win three first-place soap box derby trophies during this year’s world championships in Ohio — the first top finishes for area kids. Johnson and Siddle qualified for the Akron races after accumulating enough points in the rally circuit last year after races in Las Vegas, Florida, California and Tennessee. The rally race season runs from Memorial Day to Memorial Day each year.For information, visit soapboxderby.org and arrowheadranchcamano.com.
