Great Race 50: Little Rascals Are Kings of the Mountain

Silver City, N.M. – The Little Rascals beat out the other five teams in this year’s King of the Mountain during this week’s annual Great Race.

The six teams had to push their cart up Cardiac Hill about 50 yards to the finish line. The only rules were that the teams had to have four guys and two girls, and every member must touch the cart or the team will be disqualifed. The teams had a chance for a second run to earn a better time.

The Misfits went for the first run and came away with a flat 35 seconds. C’s Get Degrees aimed to beat this score and were successful as they recorded 34 seconds.
