Derby Daze, the official Louisiana State Derby Car Championship, is sponsored by the City of Leesville in historic downtown Leesville every year.
The derby gives children ages 6-17 an opportunity to build their own cars based on a specific plan and race them down Third Street using gravity as their only source of power.
There are two categories of racers, each using a very specific schematic.
National Approved Racer -- racers built from kits that can be ordered from the National Soap Box Derby website.
Lulu Street Racer -- cars built from scratch to the following specifications:
The derby is held every year in conjunction with the Armadillo Rally. See the 2023 Schedule of Events.
