In the summer of 1997, “six men climbed to the top of Mt Tabor, pulling their creations of death and destruction behind them,” according to the organization. And the PDX Adult Soapbox Derby was born. More than two decades later, Mount Tabor Park continues to host the race. It features cars built for speed and others built for style. The derby will take place on Saturday. Jason de Parrie-Turner is the PR director of the derby and board member at large. Lloyd Price is a racer in the derby. They join us with details on this year’s race.
