About Us

Piedmont Area Soap Box Derby is located in Culpeper, VA. Our track, Paul Bates Raceway, is considered one of the fastest on the East Coast! We love having the children from our surrounding counties race with us in our June Local. Also, we are excited to be able to offer Rally Racing at our track which is open to our Local Drivers and Drivers from outside our area! We have cars that can be loaned to interested potential racers between the ages of 7 and 20.
