Jeff Iula grew up around the Soap Box Derby. His memories of the race events over the past forty years are a treasure trove of the history of the gravity race, but also other aspects of the the Derby Downs race that are rarely covered. Aided by writer, Bill Ignizio, Iula has delved into his collection of Derby memorabilia to identify the most compelling images of cars and contestants, programs and tickets, and celebrities and ceremonies. This collection is unique and informative. A must for Soap Box Derby fans.
