This past Saturday (Aug 17) marked the latest edition of what is hands-down one of Portland's greatest homegrown events: The 2019 Adult Soapbox Derby. It's a day of grand artistic achievement, speed, and drinking (in that order) as 27 hilariously creative art cars sped down the twisty, turny track at Mt. Tabor. And while getting the fastest time isn't the most important thing, it's still something to be proud of, and this year's top three speediest were #3 Abukatoo, #2 Lader-horsers, and #1 Scuderia who screamed across the finish line in 71.91 seconds. Congrats to all, and check out these great photos from the Mercury's Meg Nanna!—eds.
