A special day at the races was held for some Longview kids, in the east Texas version of the soap box derby. A beautiful spring day saw the second annual "R-A downhill races" held at "Fellowship Baptist church" in Longview. Children from 5 area churches participated in the races, raising money to send kids to summer church camps.

     All of the cars had to be made of wood, have rubber tires, and weigh exactly the same. Races were held for kids in 3 different weight categories, lightweight , middleweight and heavyweight.
