At last weekend’s ROAR Nationals in Porter, TX there was one particular event in the pit area that drew nearly as much excitement as the on-track action itself. A collection plate circulated through the pits to put together a jackpot for young TLR racer Denver Houghton from Benton, LA, who agreed to eat a large beetle in order to collect the winnings. This video is not for those with weak stomachs.
Denver maintained that he was going to use his earnings to buy an outboard engine for his fishing boat, but instead surprised his father with a birthday gift – a new stainless steel exhaust system for his pickup truck. A great ending to a gross story!
