As a child, Tim Finnegan watched as his siblings raced soapbox derby cars every year.
Due to a developmental disability, he was never able to participate, until his father Leo Finnegan built a doublewide car that could fit two kids. With his siblings at the wheel, Tim could finally participate in the activity he watched for so long.
On July 20, the Rotary Club of Issaquah and Life Enrichment Options will put on their 16th annual Challenge Series Race, where people with disabilities can race in their own soapbox derby cars alongside their peers.
