Soapbox Derby

© David Torrence
I just read the news that I missed the St. Louis Jaycees annual soapbox derby this year. Known as " The Thrill on the Hill". I have attended this event three out of the last five years. It slipped my mind due to an editorial photoshoot on Saturday and editing the files on Sunday along with a mild case of food poisoning. So I don't think I would have been in the best of shape to enjoy the race. Here are a few images from last year.

Here is an excellent video from Living St. Louis about the history
of Soapbox Derby.
