Soap box derby racers hit the track in Quincy

On your mark, get set... go!

Dozens of kids in Quincy raced to the finish line Saturday at the annual Soap Box Derby races.

Racers got the chance to compete in derby cars that they assembled and designed this morning.

Winners in each division were awarded a weekend of fun at various places in Quincy.

Racers say they love participating in the event each year.

"You feel like you're flying in the air, just like soaring smoothly" said Isabella Gengenbacher.

"Everybody that you know comes and you kind of see people that you haven't seen in a while," said Logan Steinkoenig.

The proceeds from the race go to The Quincy Optimist Club, a not-for-profit service group.
