The 2015 Soupbox Derby, held in Langley this last Sunday with the most entries in recent years, was a fitting memorial to Tucker Stevens, who is credited with reviving the event. The windstorm and rain retreated in time for the First Street Hill to dry sufficiently that it allowed a safe race for participants and spectators.
