Delta’s soap box derby a second-annual success

45 kids competed to be the fastest soap box racer in the municipality

Delta’s second annual soap box racing derby saw 45 kids race down 6th Avenue in Tsawassen on June 10. But only one would be named the winner.

Vanessa Costa, driving a Shpak and Co.-sponsored cart, won first place for having the fastest time of the day. Rory Brown, with Swim Blue, came in second and Luka Weisel, with South West Mortage, came in third.

Prizes were also given out for best costume, cart design and crowd favourite.

Jackson Yagin, dressed in a bannana suit, won for best costume. Teagan Reid, driving a shower curtain-enclosed cart for Scott Reid Plumbing, won crowd favourite.

Go Green Pest Control’s Rat Rod Roxy cart, a blue 1930s Buick-inspired soap box racer, won best cart design.

In total, more than 1,500 people came out to watch this year’s event, which raised over $15,000 for the Rotary Club of Tsawwassen. According to announcer Rick Lewall, this year’s event was a big improvement over the first derby thanks to bigger wheels and better brakes.
