ODESSA - McKinney Park in Odessa is kicking off the soap box derby tournament for the first time in the Permian Basin.
The event is something of a tradition and is usually held in Sweetwater.
This year the fun starts at 8:30 a.m. Saturday morning at McKinney Park and will go on until about 3:30 p.m.
The derby is open to all families who want to participate.
The only rule is the kids participate in building the race car.
