Kristina Damond literally rode her way into the history books on Aug. 6, 1994.
And she placed Jamestown on the International Soap Box Derby map in the process.
For Damond, then 13, became the first Jamestown Area Soap Box Derby champion to win a national title as she finished first in the Stock Car Division at the All-American Soap Derby in Akron, Ohio.
Damond qualified for the All-American race by virtue of her victory in Jamestown Area Soap Box Derby two months earlier at the track on Baker Street at Bergman Park.
In many ways, history will repeat itself on Saturday when Damond - now Kristina (Damond) Townsend - and her parents, Tim and Denise Williams - will return to Jamestown to donate her championship-winning soap box derby car to the Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame.
Tim Williams, who originally built the car with Kristina 19 years ago, has done a complete restoration of the racer and Kristina, now 33, plans to take one final ride in it at 1 p.m. at the Sinatra Soap Box Derby Track on Falconer Street.
Earlier in the day, Kristina and her parents will be guests of Jim Roselle and Russell E. Diethrick Jr. on the "Times of Your Life Radio' program on WJTN 1240 radio at 10 a.m.
The 29th annual Jamestown Area Soap Box Derby is set for 9 a.m. June 8 at the Sinatra Track at Diethrick Park.
