The races take place in Douglas, just across the channel from downtown Juneau. They block off a street and line it with tires. It seemed like half of Juneau turned out to watch.
It was awesome. Kids were crashing into the tires right and left. The reason there isn't a derby in Milwaukee is because I am sure the city is terrified of getting sued. But Alaskan kids are tough. They jump up and shake it off when they crash.
