First Annual Newbury 500 – April 21, 2012

The First Annual Newbury 500 will be held on April 21, 2012 from 12pm-4pm. The event will feature a full-scale soap box derby with the track running along the northernmost portion of Newbury Highland before ending at the Marbleseed Lane cul-de-sac. The soap-box cars have been constructed and will be sponsored by Newbury as well as a number of the community’s strategic partners including Giant Eagle, Andersen Windows and Doors, 84 Lumber, James Hardie, Deklewa Home, Heartland Homes, S&A Homes and Stambrosky Homes. If interested in participating as a driver, please register by April 17.
