Defying gravity for fun and glory
SHARON — Forty-one gravity racers turned out to compete in the fourth annual Adult Soap Box Derby on Saturday, July 21, and to entertain and amaze the large crowd of spectators at Veterans Field.
After what seemed like weeks of dry heat and then heavy rain, the weather was perfect for the event.
Some of the gravity racers (also known as soap box racers) were built by serious racers who regularly compete in soap box derbies. For other entries, style, design and humor were more important than victory.
