On your mark. Get set. GO! Two teams rush to the finish line with reckless ambition. Beer is spilling. Crowds are cheering. Music is blaring. The thrill of the race electrifies, but only one couch can be crowned the champ. Yes, a couch. Sanford’s annual Sofas and Suds race pits local businesses against each other as they put the pedal to the metal on customized rolling couches. You could say this is a way for the community to come together and bolster local businesses, but really this is just about watching people turn grandma’s couch into a speeding bat out of hell. Crashing isn’t just a possibility – it’s a certainty. “A Mediocre Time” podcast hosts Tom and Dan will attempt to control the chaos as they provide live commentary during the races. You could even meet the human loud-horns with the purchase of a VIP ticket, which includes free drinks (as if Tom and Dan weren’t enough incentive). It also comes with access to bathrooms, so when the others are peeing behind buildings, you get to sit comfortably on a mobile toilet. It’s all about the bragging rights here at Sofas and Suds.
