The All American Soap Box Derby, featuring cars racing at speeds of 25 to 30 miles per hour down a 500-foot hill, will be at Marietta High School from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. today.

Admission will be free.

Drivers, from 8 to 17 years old, will travel from around north Georgia to compete in this local race, which is a qualifying event for the world race.

The winners of each age group will move on to compete in the 78th Annual All American Soap Box Derby World Championship Race, which takes place in Akron, Ohio in July. The date for the national race event has not yet been set.

At the world championship, winners will represent Cobb County and Georgia to compete against racers from across the United States and other countries.
