The World's Fastest Clown not only drives race cars but he headed the team to build the overall winning entry in the Grassroots Motorsports Magazine 1999 $1,500 Challenge! The "Challenge" was to see who could build the fastest car for $1,500 or less. That $1,500 includes everything from the purchase of the car to the nuts, bolts, paint, tires etc. The competition included a 1/4 mile drag race, show car judging, and an autocross. The nitrous injected 2.0 Vega Cosworth engine in the '74 MGVC Roadster brought the "clown" team a victory in both the drag race and the car show. Finishing third at the autocross was all they needed for a First Overall Victory!
Why did The World's Fastest
Clown invest 288 hours of his time into this project?
"First, I love a challenge. Actually, I wanted to prove a
point; this project is a lot like my drug/tobacco prevention
program. I wanted to show that hard work and creativity can
produce better results than just throwing money at
something. People can't believe we built that car for under
$1,500, just like people at first can't believe the impact
my program has on the youth. While hundreds of millions of
dollars have been spent in the "war" on drugs with minimal
results, this campaign has been rated #1 across America with
very limited funding, but, with unlimited creativity and
hard work." states The World's Fastest Clown.
