Louisiana Championship Soap Box Derby

Derby Daze, recently designated by Former Lieutenant Governor Jay Dardenne as the official Louisiana State Derby Car Championship, is held by the Lulu Street Racers in historic downtown Leesville every year. The derby gives children ages 6­-17 an opportunity to build their own cars ­­ based on a specific plan ­­ and race them down Third Street using gravity as their only source of power.
