Tuesday's One Cup of Java Challenge

Tuesday's One Cup of Java Challenge: The first one of these sporting events was held on this date in 1934 in Dayton, Ohio, although it’s been held in nearby Akron since 1935. At its peak it was one of the five most attended sporting events in America, despite competitions that generally last about 30 seconds. The youngest event winner was 9, the oldest, I believe, was 15. Your One Cup question this morning: based on the clues provided, name this now 74-year-old sporting event. One last clue: while sports like pro baseball and pro football may be declining because of their scandals, in this sport, the whole point is to go downhill.

Answer: The All-American Soap Box Derby.
