an unforgettable weekend

Alas, the Red Bull Soap Box Race has come and gone.

The Good, The Bad, and The Nerdy came to St. Louis in full force this past weekend and put on a show worthy of a Broadway play. The Numerator faced up against a myriad of competitors including a group of Elvis impersonators, a bag of cheese puffs, a few pirate ships, a space shuttle and a giant skateboard - to name a few.

While we didn't end up on the podium, the Numerator was on the top in many fellow competitors and spectators minds. We wowed the crowd in the pits with our aura of nerdiness (and our free Nerds candy), Star Wars action figures, chess games, pocket protectors and sweet dance moves. The Derbycell Battery was charged up and powered the Numerator to a great finish in the race, and Chuck gave the crowd a show they won't soon forget when he slid face-first down the 50-foot-tall starting ramp, then proceeded to sprint the entire race course to meet the Numerator at the finish line for the post-race interview.

This video has a clip of Chuck running past the Vans Skateboard and a clip of our pre-race dance routine to get some noise from the crowd:

Thanks to everyone who sponsored, supported, cheered and helped us out! We couldn't have done it without all of you, and we already have plans for "The Numerator 2.0" so it will only be a matter of time before The Good, The Bad and The Nerdy return...

-The Good, The Bad, and The Nerdy

...the Numerator is always on top!

I think it should be called Numerator 2.1 BETA.
