On Saturday, the Hazard Kiwanis Club held their annual Soap Box Derby. The most coveted of the prizes, is the championship of the Super-Stock event.


After seven byes and seven races, eventual champion Tessa Renfro was knocked into the loser’s bracket by Hallie Jo Kilburn. Eight races later the two would meet for the championship.


Renfro took out Kilburn in the 22nd heat of the day, but that would not be enough to win the championship as Kilburn had not lost a heat yet. The two racers took to the track again, and again, Renfro edged Kilburn, giving her the championship, and a trip to Akron, Ohio for the Nationals.
