Photolog: Red Bull Soapbox Races 2011

This past weekend Downtown LA played host to the Red Bull Soapbox Race, a national race for amateur drivers fueled by creativity & of course speed.  Starting at the top of 5th & Grand, the course wound it’s way down the side of Pershing Square lined with hay-bales and spectators alike.  Some were victorious, others crashed & burned but in the most spectacular of fashion, and all shared a raw enthusiasm for competition.  Over 115,000 attendees came out to cheer on their favorite teams to fame & glory, but there can only be one winner… Team Lakers FanWagon who was coincidentally first off the starting gates, held onto their lead throughout the competition, taking home the gold.  For those of you who missed the event, check out the photos below!
