What has four wheels, goes really fast, and leaves behind a trail of I suds?
Actually, nothing. But soap box racers probably come closest to that description. See for yourself with Nickelodeon's Special Delivery: The All American Soap Box Derby, in which contestants ages 11 to 17 gather in Akron, Ohio, to race for scholarships and prizes.
This year's winner was Sami Jones of Salem, Ore., with Danny Groth of Flint, Mich. taking second.
The high-speed sports spectacular was taped Aug. 11-13 and shows that even though soap-box derbies have been going on from time immemorial, the sport is far from being all washed up.
"Special Delivery: The All American Soap Box Derby" Sunday at 3 p.m., Nickelodeon. For all ages.

Where's the party, you ask? A better question might be who's The Party? They're a quintet of teen-age performers who met on "The New Mickey Mouse Club" set. In true Hollywood fashion, they put together a pop band, released an album ("The Party," in September), and embarked on a whirlwind nationwide tour called "Tilyadrop." Now you can check them out in a Disney Channel special featuring concert footage, interviews with group members, and a behind-the-scenes visit to the recording studio. It's "The Party" in Concert (Tuesday at 8 p.m., the Disney Channel). For ages 10 and up.
