VIRGINIA CITY, Nev. (AP) - With such names as "Pee II" and the "Urinator," they rolled down the main drag of this old western town before cheering fans and awe-struck visitors.
Welcome to Virginia City's annual Outhouse Races. To the winner goes the Royal Flush Trophy.
"It's bizarre," said Brett Coleman, 30, of Seattle, who was visiting a friend in nearby Carson City. "But it combines two popular things: restrooms and racing."
Twenty-two outhouses and portable toilets competed over the weekend.
The Royal Flush Trophy is a glass outhouse, but other prizes include a toilet seat and bedpan.
