Instead of a soapbox derby, this event at Riverside Baptist Church was called a junk box car derby. Pastor Ken Maddox said nothing could be purchased, and the car had to be built with items found around the home. No motors and feet off the ground. The event was held Saturday, and Maddox said this was a back-to-school event held for the kids in the community. All the vehicles were built by the men of the church.
