Soap­box rac­ers com­pete against Moose Jaw in an­nual Father’s Day event

Prairie Post (East Edition) - - CLASSIFIED­S - Con­trib­uted

This year’s Father’s Day Soap­box Races were a suc­cess, rac­ing down their “track” on Cen­tral Av­enue North on Sun­day, June 16th.

There were 17 rac­ers from Swift Cur­rent with 6 rac­ers from the Moose Jaw Soap­box Club that worked the laws of physics to their ad­van­tage.

Rolling downhill in wheeled cars pow­ered by grav­ity it­self has been an ex­cit­ing sport in Swift Cur­rent for the past 37 years.

The track is no stranger to the en­gine-less, grav­i­ty­driven-cars that run in 2 dif­fer­ent di­vi­sions with some fear­some wheel to wheel com­pe­ti­tion.
