Soapbox Derby Took Over Downtown Seattle Sunday, Craziness Ensued (PHOTOS)

Over thirty teams participated in the Red Bull sponsored event, which saw carts weave through twists, turns, and jumps at speeds of over 40mph. Get a taste of the craziness below but be sure to check out the slideshow as well, it's action-packed!
