Steady and Heady: SweetWater Does the Red Bull Soapbox Race

That’s right folks, we’ve officially been accepted into the 2012 Red Bull Soapbox race here in Atlanta…and team SweetWater is ready to tear it up. Not only do we have one hell of a creative soapbox design, but our car is being built by the folks over at Fuller Hot Rods so this baby is bound to be dope. Best part? Our very own Founder and Big Kahuna Freddy Bensch is leading our pit crew as the driver…and he’s got a few stunts up his sleeves too.

We’ve also lined up an inspired skit with some spicy costumes you’d be a sucker to miss. If you are around on June 9, come on down and catch the action in person. This year’s race is held at Piedmont Park and features nearly 40 teams of speed demons. In the meantime, show us some love by placing your vote for us as the “crowd favorite” on Red Bull’s Winner Voting Site:

In the meantime, we’ll get your whistle wet with some images of our soapbox car sketch and our first test drive crash. Cheers!
