GRAND JUNCTION DERBY RETURNING FOR NINTH YEAR

Derby Car Registration Still Open

 

Westfield, IN- Westfield’s annual soapbox racing event returns when the Grand Junction Derby rolls into the city’s downtown on October 7.

 

“We can’t wait for everyone to come out and root on their favorite cars and drivers,” Parks and Recreation Director Melody Jones said.

 

The family friendly derby gives residents and businesses the chance to race hand-built derby cars in bracketed heats. A gravity powered start via two large flatbeds sends the cars down Union Street and onwards to a chance at victory. Drivers are encouraged to wear costumes to match their car’s theme. All cars will be displayed along “Gasoline Alley” to win the coveted people’s choice award.

 

The festivities kick off at 3 p.m. with a parade of cars and tricycle race, followed by the derby car race itself at 3:30.

 

The Grand Junction Derby is once again sponsored by title sponsor Church Brothers Collision Repair.
