Ladies and Gentlemen start your engines for the 6th annual Madison Avenue Soapbox Derby! About 1,000 people watched the race down Oakhurst’s busiest street on Saturday as close to 90 racers put on their best costumes and rode their fastest cars on a quarter mile stretch. Over the past six years the neighborhood event has been able to raise over $70,000 for charity.
