The Oregon Trail prevailed in Dallas on Saturday, taking first place at the 13th U.S. Red Bull Soapbox Race.
A lively crowd of more than 67,000 descended upon Austin Ranch in North Dallas on Saturday to watch human-powered soapbox cars race down hill.
Forty teams of adrenaline junkies and just plain crazies, planned, plotted, built and brought their rides to Texas' first ever Red Bull Soapbox Race.
The non-motorised machines were judged on three criteria: speed, creativity and showmanship.
The Red Bull Soapbox Race dates back to 2000, when it first took place in Belgium, and has since visited almost 30 countries.
Team Mutt Cutts made an impression on both spectators and the judges in their carpeted shag-mobile and won the People's Choice Award, while Oregon Trail took the first-place prize.
Their covered wagon sped down the course in record time.
