4th Annual Outhouse Race Results

Tinney's Tavern wishes to thank all participants and spectators at this year's annual Outhouse Derby. I hope everyone had as much fun as we did!

Official Results:

1st Place: "Five Man Bomb Sled" (Brian Brumley & Friends)
These guys showed not only a clever airstream designed machine, but also that they have the fortitude, integrity, and stamina to compete in 3 separate heats, beating out 2 former Championship teams, to prove they are the Undisputed "Outhouse Champs"!

2nd Place: "Clancy's Shamrock Shitters"
This Green Machine was built Lean - I think it weighed about 4 lbs! Definitely a unique design, and when it went straight, I think it was as fast as any other. Nice job guys - way to represent!

3rd Place: "Brick Shit House" (Team of Lake Desolation Locals)
Our 2009 Champs! These guys finished strong, as expected, and if it weren't for their machine overturning midway through the their first heat, they might have pulled off a 2nd consecutive Championship title! Kudos to the driver - she rode the last half of their second heat upside down!! Nice job guys and gal!
