Helping hand to young racers.

LBOC members helped children from the Lafayette Boys and Girls club with race day preparations on their cars.  Gary Buttry organized the effort and helped with race day on June 20, 2015.  Racers are required to tear down and re-assemble the race cars, where the LBOC’s help was needed most.  More information on the Soap Box Derby program can be found here. <click.  Ellie Butz, Pete Branson, Frank Donaldson, and Larry Loft were part of various pit and build crews. More information on our local Boys and Girls club can be found here. <click
