San Francisco loves crazy events!  The weirder, the better.  So, it’s no surprise that Red Bull decided to host their Soap Box Derby in Dolores Park in the Mission District this past weekend.  Somewhere close to 100,000 people showed up for the show.  36 different teams built their own soap box cars and raced down a steep hill, over a jump, and tried to get to the finish line without crashing.  The crazier the contraption, the more the crowd cheered. 

One of my friends was on the Home Run Hero team.  They were one of 2 teams to score perfect 10’s from the judges, but somehow they didn’t win.  They did finish 3rd for fan favorite, though. 

All in all, I’d say a good time was had by all.  I’m hoping this becomes a yearly event.  Check out the highlights here:
