SOAP BOX DERBY READY TO ROLL

Western New York Soap Box Derby racers will get the green flag to begin racing at 10:30 a.m. Sunday on the site of the former Grand Island Nike Base on Whitehaven Road near West River Parkway.

The winner of Sunday's race will compete Aug. 11 in the All-American Soap Box Derby in Akron, Ohio.

A "celebrity race" to call attention to the event will precede the competition on Grand Island, and fathers of some of the racers will try their skill at piloting some of the lightweight cars down the inclined track. Spectators are welcome, free of charge.
