Red Car Wins First-Ever THON ‘Car Race’

As a morale booster early Saturday morning, THON planned a special historic event for the Bryce Jordan Center: THON Weekend’s first-ever “car race.”

To accomplish this feat, two car banners — red and blue — started in the stands on opposite sides of the BJC and raced as spectators crowd-surfed them to the center Section 114 across from the main stage.

Despite a late-race comeback from the blue car after it was nearly dropped over, the red car narrowly escaped with the victory to Section 114.

I kid you not, THON started announcing this apparently historic “car race” right as four BJC staffers lined up their zamboni-like sweepers on the floor. I must say, I think I would’ve rather seen four middle-aged men race zamboni sweepers than seen college kids struggle to pass banners around the arena.

Until next time, blue car.
