Boxcar Derby

2016 Boxcar Derby our BIGGEST SUCCESS!


Over 200 people braved the weather on April 10th for the 8th Annual Boxcar Derby. Brothers of Phi Delta Theta said it was a three-hour-long Ice Bucket Challenge at the Big House! Fans said racing in cold, wet weather increases your chances of contracting hyper-derbia! Over 45 teams registered in 3 divisions, and 3-peat champion Team Daschunds took home the overall winner trophy. Congratulations to all the teams who built and decorated boxcars or just came out to race! Congratulations also to Team Plum and Team Rocket Car for bringing in the most pledges through Fund Racing! Watch the 2016 Boxcar Derby Highlights retro-style video.

Together we raised over $20,200 – the most successful Boxcar Derby yet!
