48 soapbox cars raced down the track at Ben Hawes Park Saturday.

It was the Owensboro Lions Club's annual Soap Box Derby.

The double elimination derby started at 9:00 Saturday morning and lasted about five hours.

A storage building was added to the track this year for cars and equipment.

The soap box derby is the Lions Club's biggest fundraiser.
