“Let's Get WYO'd,” Sheridan Media's entry in this year's bed races, took top prize in the event in downtown Sheridan Friday morning.

Blake King, who was spokesman for the racers, said the win felt great.

King said the bed-racing team actually got in a few seconds of practice before the event.

Five teams entered this year, including Bob's Super Clean, Medicine Train Classic, Medicine Train Express, Sheridan Recreation District and Let's Get WYO'd. Races were run in four heats.

Sheridan Media Sales Manager Jim Schellinger, spokesman for the races, said the bed races have been part of the downtown Sheridan scene on Rodeo Friday for at least 27 years.

Schellinger said the races are sponsored by Sheridan Media, Craftco Metals Services and Back Country Bicycles.
