Student Promotes TCS at Soap Box Derby

Ayden Crites participated in Lima’s soapbox derby race in the stock division.  The race was held on June 22 at Faurot Park.  Approximately 40 cars raced down the hill in hopes of winning their division and getting the chance to race in Akron at the national finals.  Ayden in his rookie year won his first heat by .5 of second.  He lost his second heat to the eventual 2 place finisher.  In his third heat he won the first phase by .3 but lost the second phase by .5 and was eliminated by .2 of a second.  Ayden plans on racing next year in the super stock division. A special thanks goes out to Ayden for putting Temple Christian School on his derby car.  For more information about participating in soapbox derby visit or visit the local chapter at
