Was fossil fuel the secret?

In front of a kapacity krowd inside Ferndale’s Belotti Hall, Trilobike Test Kitchen was named the 2017 Kinetic Grand Champion, the most coveted of a slew of awards handed out to the kourageous racers who’d spent the last three days traversing 42 miles of pavement, sand and water during the Kinetic Grand Championship.

Steve McHaney, the kreative force behind Trilobike Test Kitchen, has been kompeting in the race for four years now, winning the first place engineering award in the last two years. He was joined on his kraft this year by his twin sons Carson and Weston.
