So here's the scoop. We didn't know a thing about Red Bull Dragster Day until Len received an email from our friend Beth on the last day plans could be mailed and post marked to Red Bull for consideration.

So Len threw together a sketch about a two-manned creepy, bat winged dragster and mailed off the plan. After being accepted as one of 32 race day entries out of the over 100 that applied, work began on construction. There would be less than six weeks to actually design and build this human powered dragster. Click for more build pics.
