This is it...the 1st Annual Blue Ridge Soap Box Derby is here! If you are a "local" or native of Fannin County, this event if for YOU! Family...Food...Fun... that is our goal for you on April 27, 2019. We are not talking about the small cars you build and race down a ramp... we are talking about the cars you sit in and steer/brake yourself! We hope to see your family work together to build a soap box car out of any material and race it against others in the community. We will have 3 separate age brackets plus a Corporate race! Did we mention food? Yes...we will have affordable food & beverage vendors available for you and your family. Keep checking back to see who our sponsors are and what awesome vendors will be on site on the big day!

Here are some other ways you can get involved:


We need VOLUNTEERS! We are going to need your help in making this event successful. We need officials at the vehicle weigh-in and again on race day. We need track volunteers who will keep the track safe from spectators and contestants as well as helping our racers get their cars to the launch point. We will need informational volunteers who can answer questions for our visitors. To volunteer, contact Mike Sullivan or Brian Higgins.
