Underage drivers rule this Ballston Spa pavement

"I wish more towns would get together and have races," said Sue Brown.

"There are some great hills down in Glenville and other places. It's a shame the kids only get to race once a year."

There were five cars and 14 racers in Sunday's competition, with winners selected by a double elimination. Pit crews worked for the entire three hours, manned with hammers to bang out dents and screwdrivers for loose wheels.

After trophies were awarded and parents paid off their $5 bets to one another, Bath Street was cleaned up and re-opened to traffic. Then, it was back to the drawing board to draft plans for next year's super speeders.

"Next year, we'll have a car my kids can lie down; there will be a roof and it will pop open for them to climb inside," schemed Mike Brown. "I can see it now."
