It's a gas!

I stopped by Chief Zzeh Gittlit school in Old Crow the other night and caught the final race of the CO2 car rally.  Students and community members made drag racing cars out of blocks of wood.  There is a space at the back of each home-made car for a CO2 cartridge.  I won't get into how difficult it is to get CO2 cartridges into a fly-in community (the cartridges are considered dangerous goods).

Here's a picture of the second-place winner.  I didn't get a picture of the first-place winner.  It was too fast.
