Super Soapbox Spectacular set for high noon Saturday

The fifth annual Salisbury Super Soapbox Spectacular is scheduled from noon to 3 p.m. on Saturday.

The event will take place near the city parking garage on Market Street.

Co-sponsored by the Salisbury Jaycees and St. Francis de Sales Boy Scout Troop 185, the entry fee is $10 per racer.

The winner receives a trophy, a $25 gift card to a local store and 50 percent of the registration fees.

Teams may be comprised of children, adults or a combination of both.

Cars entered in the derby must have a braking system and the ability to be launched from a 4-foot ramp and make right turns.

The wheel base of all cars must be at least 2.5 times the ground clearance to prevent overturning. Cars must be sturdy enough to compete in at least six competition heats. Drivers must wear helmets.

Admission for spectators is free, and the public is invited.

Refreshments will be available for purchase.

Proceeds benefit summer camp scholarships for members of Troop 185.
