Got a Fast Turtle?

Cairo has been known to have some of the fastest turtles in the sport. This year will be no exception. If you think you have a turtle with a little horsepower bring it to the pool park on Saturday, June 8th at noon to throw down with some of the quickest reptiles in the area. Races begin at Noon.

Turtles with the most decorated shells don’t necessarily get style points but they do get great admiration from the crowd. Contact Steve at 308-379-0752 with all your turtle racing questions.
