Writer, producer and star Corbin Bernsen, cast members Nathan Gamble, Maureen Flannigan and Timothy Omundson, and Akron Mayor Don Plusquellic and other local leaders will walk the red carpet.

After his dad is killed in Afghanistan, Trey strives to compete in and help revive the faltering Soap Box Derby, and must devise a way to get from his California home to Ohio."
