Security State Bank Brings Home The "GREAT RACE" Hardware!

South Woods Park was the place to be Saturday afternoon if you were cruising about our fine south central Kansas community. "9" teams squared off in the annual "Slate Creek Depot Great Race" with participants from "7" different states according to the race's founder and director Mr. Jack Potucek.  The skies were cloudy and for late July, seasonably cool with the thermometer reading 88 as the race began.

The Great Race


The 28th GREAT RACE RELAY took place Saturday afternoon (072118) at South Woods Park and points beyond. "8" teams participated in the "13" event relay which includes motocross, horseback, bicycles, canoes, long and short distance running. Each team carries a colored railroad spike from start to finish - if you don't cross the finish line with it, you don't win! Jack Potucek has been the Racemaster for all 28 races, dating back to 1977.
