While a vehicle speeding down 250 yards in 57 seconds doesn't sound very fast, it's the hare beating the tortoise when the 'vehicle' is powered by the sun.

The winner was Brooks Solar and the contest was the second Annual Solar Drag Race. Held in Wenatchee, Washington, it is currently the only drag race in the world whose vehicles are all powered by solar power. That's pure sun-power, too; the contestants were forbidden to even use batteries to start their engines.

Other competitors included Chehalis High School and Central Washington University which won in their respective categories. Prizes included college scholarship worth $1,000 by solar cell producer REC Silicon.
