It’s race day for the Stanwood-Camano Island Soap Box Derby, the largest Soap Box Derby race on the West Coast. Racers will roll, rain or shine, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday at Lincoln Hill, 276th Street NW, Stanwood.

The nearby Senior Center is selling breakfast, and the Boy Scouts will sell hamburgers and more throughout the day.

About 70 cars and drivers from Snohomish, Island, Skagit, Whatcom and King counties are expected to race, with drivers competing for the opportunity to represent their home town at the World Championship in Akron, Ohio.
