A quintessential American tradition vroooooms down Macklind Avenue this Sunday, as the R&R Soap Box Derby Race
returns for another year of good-spirited fun. Boys and girls between the ages of seven and eighteen are invited to participate in the stock, super stock and masters division of the race -- and the winner of each division is eligible to race at the national level later this year. For a donation, adults can take part in the Oil Can Race. The St. Louis Jaycees sponsor this full day (9 a.m. to 4 p.m.) of speedy competition on the historic Hill at the corner of Macklind and Botanical avenues (314-740-2755). Races are free to watch, and it costs $15 to compete in the oil-can races.
