Default Big Wheel Racing

Some of the SAE guys down here at UCF met up for some extreme big wheel racing in one of the parking garages tonight. Nate (red shirt), Mark (orange hoodie), Suzie (camo jacket), and I went to Target to purchase some racing vehicles. We bought out their inventory, with only one manly big wheel and three princess models.

The pictures are not the best, as it was really my first time playing with an off camera flash, and I spent more time riding than taking pictures. The garage was 4 stories, and we estimate getting close to 20mph on the bottom floor. I do know that the plastic bearings were melting near the end.
