Aboard Americana

The next issue of National Geographic will name it’s Top 10 iconic places and events symbolizing all-american ideals and culture.  On that list will be Akron’s own, Soap Box Derby.

Here is a picture taken today from my Blackberry aboard this slice of Americana, heading down the famous Derby Downs track.


30-miles-an-hour in a small box was definitely more thrilling than what I had expected…however restrictions in running the other car off the track limited its thrill.
