Hands On A Hardbody Competition: Day 1

It's the first day of the endurance competition of the year. The Hands on a Hardbody competition kicked off at 6:00 a.m. By 6:00 p.m., only one contestant had had enough. For some, this is not their first year to keep their hands on the prize, to eventually win it. Everyone has their own strategy.
The endurance contest, often called "a look into Americana" is one that has drawn world-wide attention.

Contestant Martha Matlock said, "It just gets in your blood. It's lots of fun. People think we are crazy and all of us probably think we are crazy, but it's great."

Contestant Jeremy Newlin said, "This is my fourth time and I haven't won yet. I don't know. But it's worth a shot."
