The annual Sheridan Jaycees and Sheridan Media Beds Along the Bighorns race had six entries this year, all of them trying to claim the World Bed Racing Trophy and $500 cold hard cash. Bob’s Super Clean is a perennial favorite.
Once again the Sheridan Fire-Rescue Department came away with the number one spot after several close heats. Firefighter Seth Larsen says that his teammates decided to let him have the prize money.
This is the first year in recent memory when prize money was offered.
Some beds were still under construction on the starting line and others have vowed to double their practice time to 20 minutes before the race.
