Red Bull Soapbox Race

Fermin Tellez

Turning Elysian Park into a surreally comical drag strip, Red Bull Soapbox Race returns to L.A. with some heavy-duty street-racing action — and it's totally legal. Seventy teams of gear geeks and speed freaks build and compete in audacious/ludicrous custom-crafted, nonmotorized vehicles with a view to wow the crowds and, of course, cross the finish line first. Participants break like the wind down Angels Point Road in Elysian Park in this exciting and amusing spectacle that challenges experienced racers and amateurs alike to use their imaginations and their street-racing skills to beat the clock and get the checkered flag. Free parking at Dodger Stadium with a free shuttle to the park.
