Ketchum youth excited about Derby trip

Reinemanns headed for Ohio

Hemingway Elementary School fifth-grade student Cary Reinemann has his pit crew ready to roll.

The Reinemann family is gearing up for a trip to the 65th annual All-American Soap Box Derby scheduled for Saturday, July 27 at Akron, Ohio.

Reinemann, 10, of Ketchum, will represent the state of Idaho. There will be over 400 racers from all around the world at Akron. They’ll compete in three different divisions and enjoy other activities for a week.

The youth qualified to race in the Super Stock Division at Akron based on his excellent results in the local Soap Box Derby race held May 29 on the turn-filled Juniper Road course along Twin Creeks in Elkhorn.

In that event, organized by Wood River Middle School teacher Rick Dressell, local kids ranging in age from 9-16 reached speeds of up to 30 miles per hour—using gravity alone.

Parents helped kids build their cars, which are purchased in kit form. Cary and his father Marc Reinemann spent many hours fine-tuning their car. They polished the axles so the wheels rotated freely. And they strove for the best aerodynamics.

At Akron, Cary will proudly display the Wood River Valley car identified by its Sun Valley logo provided by Sun Valley Company. The Reinemann family also thanked other sponsors who have provided items to be exchanged at Akron.

Cary, in his second year of Soap Box Derby racing, is an active boy. He also enjoys skiing and snowboarding with the Sun Valley Ski Team as well as baseball, soccer, basketball, tennis, rollerblading, golf, swimming and ice hockey.
