The Red Bull Soapbox Derby will be in Des Moines just east of the state Capitol this Saturday, drawing in over 50,000 people from all over the United States and the world! And after you watch this video of some of the funniest crashes, you'll see why!
This isn't just a soapbox derby race downhill...that's boring. Costumes and a theme are pretty much mandatory, and you need a 30 second skit or introduction ready to perform before you even get in your car! Throw in a few jumps along the way, and you've got yourself a race to remember
