People are once again racing homemade, mobile outhouses in a western South Dakota event known as the Nemo 500.
Co-founder Troy Saye says a small crowd of around 100 turned out the first year, despite snowy conditions. The event has drawn as many 1,100 people in recent years, and he expects about a dozen teams will take part in the eighth annual race this year.
Saye says other teams this year are hoping to dethrone last year's winner, a group of teachers from Mission calling themselves "Plunger Games."
Proceeds will go to the Naja Shriners Kids Transportation Fund. There is a raffle as well as silent and live auctions.
The event takes place Saturday at the Nemo Guest Ranch northwest of Rapid City.
