Starting at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 28, in Austin Ranch, the City of The Colony will once again play host to the Red Bull Soapbox Race-DFW, an international event in which amateur drivers race homemade soapbox vehicles.
The event was held previously in The Colony in 2012. This unique event challenges both experienced racers and amateurs alike to design and build outrageous soapbox dream-machines and compete against the clock in a downhill race. Red Bull has held more than 100 soapbox races around the world since the first one in Brussels in the year 2000. Over the years, vehicles have ranged from realistic replicas to anything the imagination can conjure up. More information about the race is available online.
