What do you mean the race is over!

Saw this in one of the local papers. Just because the checker flag was thrown didn't mean the young competitors were ready to throttle down

Kid racers almost elude capture, steal some extra track time after checkers fall | Kingsport Times-News

Let 'em run. They only had a mile left and they were having a blast. They may have tipped over on turn 3, but, hey!!! Bless their hearts

I'm sure it was the time of their young lives running around the track .... not so sure about those guys that were running them down to stop them, especially the one that fell!

If I had posted that video above I would have put the Benny Hill theme song in it.

What a hoot! I would be telling an untruth if I mentioned that I had never done that myself - the running after the kid part that is. And fallen a couple of times, but way more gracefully. Kids know how to step on the gas. The brake is a foreign thing to them. The Benny Hill theme song is spot on.
