Hey there sports fans! Are you feeling blue because we are about 3 months away from opening day for the Kansas City Royals? Are you seeing red because the Kansas City Chiefs season ended so gloomy? Well don’t go to bed upset, get out there and push that bed because the 7th annual HCCI Great Topeka Bed Race is just around the corner. That’s right racing fans, come Saturday, March 14th, the streets in downtown Topeka will be turned into a drag racing track and the scorching, fast beds will be on the loose. Why as we speak, last year’s teams are getting their bed in top racing shape to take on the competition. Last year our winning team was from Sports Car Club of America ( SCCA ) with one of our fastest times ever. SCCA de-throned two time winner Fed Ex, who finished in 2nd place last year. When an unknown spokesman from Fed Ex said, “we absolutely, positively have to get the trophy back”, SCCA responded by just revving up their engine and said “bring it on”. Not to be outshined, the team form Westar Energy, that finished in 3rd place and is also a two time defending champion, winning the very first two bed races in 2009 and 2010, had this to say: ” We definitely have the power to bring that trophy back where it belongs, and besides, SCCA will have trouble tuning their bed in the dark.”
As you can see, things are starting to heat up with the bed race teams. You don’t want to miss the excitement and raw power that these racing beds have. So mark your calendar, Saturday March 14th. The day the beds hit the street. Topeka will never be the same.
