From School Bus Drag Racing to Robot Jockeys

— November 11, 2009 — Pop Culture
School bus drag racing, bathtub racers and robot jockeys, today we hunt: RACY SPORTS.

10. Bus driver by day, drag racer by night. Next time you use public transit or put your kids on school bus, remember this video.

9. Want all the thrill of racing without the speeding tickets? Get a racing simulator in the comfort of your own home.
