Thousands turned out on Sunday as Yesler Way was transformed from a run-of-the-mill street into a fast-paced soapbox derby track. 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!
