RED BULL SOAPBOX RACE SPEEDS INTO DALLAS SEPTEMBER 28TH

–Speed Demons Ready to Screech Through The Colony’s Austin Ranch–

WHO: Gear-heads, adrenaline junkies and the just plain crazy, have been planning, plotting, building and testing their creations for months. Hundreds submitted their ideas, and the 48 most unique and creative crafts were chosen. Crafts range from Mavs basketball shoes, a Barbie Jeep, a life-sized bomb pop and a baby carriage!

Racers will be judged on speed, creativity and showmanship by a star-studded panel of judges including: Olympic hopeful and Plano native Claire Buhrfeind, former Fast N’ Loud star Aaron Kaufman, NBA All-Star Shawn Marion, American rapper Dorrough Music, baseball legend Pudge Rodriguez and TV host and personality Kaime Stroot. Kidd Kraddick in the Morning’s J-Si Chavez and Jenna Page will help host the festivities.
