Fast and furious: Teams bring class, sass to crazy dash through downtown LA – LA Daily News.

The City of Bell Pickpockets are gonna rock your faces off!  And by rock your faces off, we’re gonna Lip Sync a show tune and dance around in prison outfits! Yeah!

The 2009 Crew celebrated Hollywood

Tomorrow morning in downtown LA the Pickpockets are gonna going for human powered racing glory as we attempt to win the 2011 Red Bull Soapbox Race.  The non-motorized race will launch each contestant through a 1,000-foot gantlet on Grand Avenue at speeds topping 40 mph.  The current record is 47 mpg, but our Team Leader Paul Pearson is confident we can break the 50 mpg barrier.

Pit row opens at 11am on Saturday with all the teams and vehicles on display.  The first race starts at 1pm at the top of Grand Ave. before taking a steep turn on to 5th past Pershing Square.  Awards will follow the races at approximately 3:15pm. Pit Row is on S. Grand Avenue near W. 3rd Street. The race course roars down Grand and takes a fierce left onto W. 5th Street. The concessions and beer garden are located in the parking lot on the corner of 5th and S. Olive Street. There is also a FREE photo booth and additional concession stands in Pershing Square Park.

The event is 100% free and open to the public. Concessions and all vendors will only accept cash.  Check out for event day info and rules.

Join me and 140,000 of your closest friends as we strive for greatness.  Look for me in a fat suit . . . in prison stripes . . . jacked on Red Bull.

Ooooohh yeah! (RIP Mancho Man)
