Kaeden Spencer prepares to race at Akron

Kaeden Spencer

Ten year old Kaeden Spencer of Scottsbluff will be racing his soap box derby car in the 2013 national All-American Soap Box Derby race in Akron, on July 27th. Kaeden will compete against 450 other racers at the world championships with an opportunity to win a $50,000 scholarship after winning the annual Oregon Trail Soap Box Derby back in mid-June.

The Akron Derby is actually a weeklong event that leads up to Saturday's event on July 27th and there will be a parade welcoming the racers. They will have a button swap, where everyone who goes exchanges buttons, and they will be visiting the Cedar Point Amusement Park.

The event will also be broadcast on an ESPN channel. Businesses interested in sponsoring Kaeden should call Louis Spencer at (308) 631-7049.
