Derby Doings
Coinciding with the Annual Capital District All-American Soap Box Derby, this exhibition features two prized derby cars. The first, designed by Richard F. Russell, was built and raced in 1949 in Schenectady, New York. The second, a modern Stock car built from a standardized kit, was raced by Taylor Van Denburg in last year’s Capital Region competition and advanced to the All-American Soap Box Derby in Akron, Ohio. Both derby cars are a testament of the courage, wit and determination of America’s youth and remind us that we are never too young, or too old, to pursue a dream to the finish line!
