Recent Project Spotlight: Soap Box Derby

Soap Box Derby

In the 1940s and ’50s, the annual Salisbury Soap Box Derby was one of the most anticipated Jaycees events of the year. Flash forward half a decade and… well, they say history repeats itself!

The Jaycees joined with St. Francis de Sales Boy Scout Troop 185 to bring the tradition back this year to celebrate the Boy Scouts of America’s 100th anniversary. Eight teams from Salisbury to Ocean City participated in the first Salisbury Super Soap Box Spectacular, recently held in the city parking garage on Market Street.

The cars were all homemade, ranging from simple flat plywood on wheels to PVC-based frames—and even one with an authentic 1960s Maryland license plate… complete with the letters “JC” to commemorate the chapter’s involvement. The winner received a trophy, $100 in gift certificates to local camping stores and half of the entry fees. The Daily Times and WBOC came out to join in the festivities, as well.
