A group of Paris locals has been selected to participate in the upcoming Red Bull Soapbox Race in the DFW Metroplex September 28, at the Austin Ranch in The Colony, Texas.

The Colony, Texas comes alive as Austin Ranch once again plays host to the Red Bull Soapbox Race. The Red Bull Soapbox Race is an international event in which amateur drivers race homemade soapbox vehicles.

They will be racing against the clock competing with up to 70 other teams all in the fight for the title and major bragging rights,” Broadway said in a press release.
This unique event challenges both experienced racers and amateurs alike to design and build outrageous soapbox dream machines and compete against the clock in a downhill race.
