Mark your calendars! The 2012 Red Bull Soapbox Race is back in Atlanta on Saturday, June 9!
This is one of my favorite summer events, y’all!
Not to be confused with the youth soapbox derby, Red Bull Soapbox Race is a national race for amateur drivers, which is fueled by creativity and competitive fun – not to mention the need for speed. This unique non-motorized racing event challenges both experienced racers and amateurs alike to design and build outrageous, human-powered soapbox dream machines and compete against the clock in a downhill race.

Soooooo, mark your calendars for Saturday, June 9th at Piedmont Park. Pits open at 10:00 a.m. First race is 12:00 p.m. You do not want to miss this awesomeness!
Here are some pictures from previous races…
