Soapbox Classic!

Last weekend’s biggest event was the hugely entertaining Soapbox Classic in downtown Marble Falls; in the photo above, two of the amazingly artistic gravity-powered entries face off in one of the final races on Sunday afternoon. Grant Dean’s streamlined purple Nemesis beat Shaun Sides’ #66 racer to take 1st Place in the Speed Division. Sides was rewarded for his innovation with the Best in Show trophy; his car was especially striking during the night-time races, with nitrous oxide and LED lights creating the appearance of flames coming from the mock exhaust pipes as he raced. For more Soapbox photos, see pages 7 to 9; for many more photos, find the Highland Lakes Weekly page on Facebook.
