The 2016 Falcons Racing Team competed in the Soap Box Derby Gravity Racing Challenge for the third time at the world-famous Derby Downs track in Akron, Ohio!
On May 21st, the Falcons Racing Team raced two cars against over 100 teams from three states, including New York, Indiana, and Ohio at the All-American Soap Box Derby Track in Akron. Both cars, their drivers, and crew performed very well with one of the two cars progressing to the 3rd round losing an exciting race by only five hundredths of a second.
