Red Bull Soapbox might return to Des Moines next year, Greg Edwards, president of Catch Des Moines tells Axios.

Why it matters: Its Iowa debut last month attracted around 25,000 people and is considered a great success, Edwards said.

State of play: The race has never happened in the same city in back-to-back years.

  • Conversations among organizers are ongoing, Edwards said.

What's next: Expect city soapbox announcements this fall, Dan Palumbo, a spokesperson for the race, told Axios.
