- The Old Rascals Benefit Soap Box Race (New this year)
This first time ever "adult" Soap Box Race known as Old Rascals Benefit Soap Box Race to be held on October 10, 2015. The event is more than just a downhill race, it will be a family fun event with food, games, and entertainment for the whole day! Not only will this be a great time and a chance for our adults to get fired up for some friendly competition, but all proceeds will go to support the Owensboro Lions Club and Puzzle Pieces! We are encouraging families, friends, individuals, and businesses to come together for this event! Registration will end Sept. 10th if a car kit is needed, but we are challenging creativity with a "Build Your Own Car" and that deadline to register is Sept. 25th! Get more info here and your registration form here.
- The Owensboro Lions Club Local Race More info coming soon.
The track address is 400 Boothfield Road for your GPS system. It is located in Ben Hawes Park which is just off Hwy 60 on the western edge of town. There are signs for Boothfield Road and the park on Hwy 60 and you can only turn one direction so it's pretty simple. There is a Sleep Inn and a Ramada Inn that are the closest hotels to the track. Other properties nearby are a Sleep Inn, Fairfield and Hampton...but road construction will make those "interesting" at best! There are two brand new hotels downtown on the Ohio River that are very nice. Unfortunately none of the properties in town have been helpful with a special rate so we cannot help much there.
For most races we'll be at the track getting things ready Friday afternoon and early evening...feel free to come by if you get in town early enough. Whether we're there or not at least you'd be able to see where you'll be racing. We will begin on Saturday morning with registration at 8:00 am and try to begin racing by 9:00 am. Registration is in the lower lot.
Again, we're glad you're coming! Let us know if you have any more questions and we'll try to help!
Good Luck! Gravity rules!!!!
