Oh, say does that turtle yet race?

Organizers teamed up with a VFW post to put on a 4th of July turtle race.

It began with the singing of the star spangled banner , of course, and a flag retirement ceremony.

Then it was time for some speeding shells. Turtles were not just scored on speed, but they were also singled out for the most patriotic look.
