In the end, Lethal Threat couldn’t escape from “the cops,” during the 2011 Bath Tub Races. After the practice runs, Kenny Crouch, the driver of Lethal Threat, said, “We were clocked at 18 MPH. The police car went 22 MPH. If we want to win, we need to do something to make us faster,”

The “International Bath Tub Races” began in the 1970’s and attracted people from all over Michigan. This year eight teams were registered to compete, but Wilson said they expected more to register Saturday morning before the start of the races.
