Cockroach Racing? What is that?
Cockroach racing began in Australia 38 years ago, and according to the pub where the cockroach races are still ceremoniously held, it all began when two Australian pub patrons were arguing “over which suburb had the biggest and fastest roaches.”
Our race is happening tomorrow, so it’s time to meet our athletes!
