The Sedalia Area Convention and Visitors Bureau works hard to recruit sporting groups to our city, build relationships and support visitors’ needs. We burst with pride when an organization that has many other location options chooses Sedalia to hold its event! So, it is with great pleasure that the Sedalia Convention and Visitors Bureau, in conjunction with National Derby Rallies, Inc., announces that the 2018 National Derby Rallies Nationals will be held at the Missouri State Fairgrounds in Sedalia from June 30 through July 4, 2018!
The NDR Championship will be held in conjunction with Sedalia’s Independence Day Celebration. According to Keri Hayes, President of NDR, Inc., “Whiteman Air Force Base will be supporting the NDR Nationals as well.” She goes on to say, “we are so excited to be collaborating with these partnerships. Between celebrating the Fourth of July and racing with family and friends, this is truly going to be an excellent event.”
The NDR is a soap box derby racing group, organized in 1977 for the purpose of fostering individual development in youths through a structured program of soap box derby-type racing and related activities. NDR promotes family involvement in all aspects of the program. The adult-youth relationship is enhanced from the early stages of planning a race car, through its construction, to travel experiences on the race circuit, the excitement of the points chase and the National Championships. The highlight of the year is the NDR National Championship held over an entire week. Racers travel from across the nation for a week of racing fun and a chance to win the title of NDR National Champion.
