The Speed Project


"The Speed Project" is a 340-mile relay race from the Santa Monica pier to the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign. We sponsored team "Take The Bridge" (an unsanctioned race organization out of New York).

At 2 AM the day of the finish, TTB was in 7th place out of 23 teams (despite their RV getting stuck in the sand the day before). By 12 PM, they had hunted down the 6th, 5th, and 4th place teams. At 4 PM and with less than two miles remaining, they had the 2nd and 3rd place teams in their sight.

It was a sprint to the finish. TTB out-kicked the 3rd place team beating them by 10 seconds, and just missed the 2nd place team by 17 seconds.
