Minnesota teams roll to Des Moines for Soapbox race
At least eight teams with Minnesota ties are competing in the Red Bull Soapbox Race in Des Moines this weekend.
Why it matters: The event, billed as "the world's wildest downhill” race, is expected to bring tens of thousands of fans to Iowa's capital.
- But the real reason it matters is it's fun!
The big picture: Our region is is the second-most represented metro in this week's race, per Axios Des Moines. We trail the host city, which has 13.
Yes, but: We must confess that we're not cheering for any of the Minnesota competitors... because our colleagues at Axios Des Moines have a car of their own!
