Usain Bolt wins drag race in Flintstones car

Jamaican track star Usain Bolt won an NHRA drag race championship today while holding a car frame on his body, Flintstones-style. "This was a little bit more of a challenge than the 100 and 200 is. The extra weight forced me to give 85 or 90-percent instead of my usual 70 percent," he said. "It felt good to be tested a little bit." Bolt hit 364.15 mph as he ran his crude vehicle across the finish line, crushing his fellow drivers. Second place finisher Dale Hawgood said he has nothing to be ashamed of. "Sometimes it's not skill. Sometimes it just comes down to who has the best equipment," he said. "And Bolt's car clearly had a better engine than my 7,000 hp ride." If he competes in a drag race again, Bolt says he will likely run with a car lighter than the Ford F-150 he hauled today.
