After an eight-year gap, Franklin County will see gravity racing return to local hills
Last year, 2020, was supposed to reintroduce Soapbox Racing (also known as gravity racing) with potentially up to three races in Franklin County and two in Vermont, but like so many events that year, all races were cancelled due to COVID-19.
The good news is that it looks like the country will open up potentially by fall. Everything won't be back to full normal, but normal enough that events such as this can occur with some restrictions.
So, to give us the best chance of having races this year, all races in 2021 will be run in September or early October.
As of this writing, two races are slated: Greenfield on Sunday, September 12th, and then a week later, Montague on Sunday, September 19th, both of which are in Franklin County, MA.
Stay tuned for more details!
