Cool, I see everyone has the safe hand cranking method down pat. Right hand holds the pig and the left hand cranks the engine. Also they must have an off/on switch near the radiator so it is easy to reach from the front.
Don't let PETA see that.
I thought that was pretty neat, there should be more of them at county fairs, I just might start going again!
That's Tillamook, Oregon, home of Tillamook cheese. When I watched in 2007, I figure the pigs were doped, because not a single one got away.
That looks like a ton of fun!
Hey, she's cheating! Why not right on the snout?
No wooden wheels? Who maintains the cars? Are they owned by the fairgrounds? How do they decide who gets to race?
That would be fun.
Most of the cars and racing slots are inherited. It's been going on since the T era, I believe. My prior links to their site are 404.
