Check out previous Soap Box Derby recaps here: 

Race times/placement is determined by car, not racer. If a car has multiple racers, it is possible they will compete as one team. If there aren't too many cars racing, duplicate drivers will move through the bracket separately. They will register their car once and then register additional racers as needed through the add-ons. Stock cars and Freestyle cars will compete in different brackets.
