Meet Des Moines' Red Bull speed demons
Why it matters: Team Axios is in the lineup and we're sizing up our competition.
Catch up fast: It's Red Bull's first soapbox competition in Iowa and it's expected to attract at least 25,000 spectators.
- 26 of the roughly 50 teams are from Iowa.
Who we're watching: These teams have slick designs but can their speeds match?
- Lebeda Racing Team: This Des Moines team's cart is inspired by the mattress maker and will feature a driver and a "sleeper."
- Team Trouble in River City: Hailing from Mason City, this cart is inspired by "The Music Man."
Cheer us on: Team pits open at 10am the day of the race. Races launch at noon.
- Capital Complex: 801 E. Walnut St.
