2018 Bed Races – Ingersoll Rand Best Overall ~ Trailers of the East Coast Fastest and Most Outrageous

The town of Mocksville raced into the Christmas season on November 16th with the 7th Annual “Twas the Night Before” Bed Race as 23 race teams made the mad dash down Main Street.

Thank you to Ed Simmons for the awesome photos!

The race saw another good turnout this year with the streets full of families, fun and holiday spirit. Race Announcer Tonia Cornett kept the crowd cheering while DJ Tim Elmore had folks dancing in the streets.

The event was covered by WXII 12 whose racing teams faced off in the first race of the night. Both teams, hopeful to win it all, stacked their racing teams with track stars from the Davie War Eagles cross country track team but to no avail. Neither team placed in the top three to win a prize.

$500 in Cash Prizes at Stake!
The fastest team, the Super Truckers from Trailers of the East Coast, took home a cool $200 in cash, while the runner-up, Camp Manna Movers, collected $125. Krazy Legs Missile, the third-place finisher, rolled away with $75. Horsin’ Around from Trailers of the East Coast won the $50 prize for being the Most Outrageous.  A Total Package prize of $50 went to Ingersoll Rand for having the best overall appearance and combination of bed decoration, message, and costumes.

Special Thanks
Tami Langdon, Mocksville’s community development coordinator, is grateful to everyone who pitched in to make the event a great success. “Kudos and thanks to the Bed Race Committee of Denise Hendrix, Jordan Hendrix and Trevor Walterman for all of their hard work; Mocksville Public Works and Parks & Grounds for lights, equipment, and course setup; the DHS Jr. Civitans for their phenomenal job controlling the course’s traffic; Trailers of the East Coast for the event trailer (and for bringing two teams again this year); and the Mocksville Police Department.”

She welcomes anyone interested in volunteering on the committee next year.
