Salem has the only dedicated Soap Box Derby racetrack on the West Coast
Salem is fortunate to have the only dedicated track for Soap Box Derby on the entire west coast. At 940 feet from start to finish and fast, smooth pavement it’s a favorite among drivers from all over. The ample run out insures safe racing. Located on the north side of beautiful Bush Pasture Park adjacent to Willamette University’s McCullough Stadium at the 600 block of SE Mission St. it’s minutes away from Salem’s City Center. There is ample parking and restrooms at topside and near the finish line.
Come out and see just
how much the City of Salem
supports the Derby!
How to get there!
