A staple at race tracks across Northern California, Johnny Miskill is one of the top auto sport flaggers in the United States. Few command the track like this Clearlake native. From Bombers to Boat Races, Miskill has an incredible amount of experience that he will bring to the Clearlake Soapbox Derby on September 21.
“This is about the kids,” said Miskill. “Nothing makes me happier than seeing children engaged at the track, and this is even more exciting because they get to build the cars from scratch and sit behind the wheel.”
While speeds won’t match those at Lakeport Speedway, that doesn’t matter to Miskill. His focus will be on safety, fair finishes and teaching the next generation of flaggers the ropes.
There is still time to register for the Clearlake Soapbox Derby. There are age groups for everyone and cars are simple to make!
