Sleeping Cars

Ever had that dream in which you’re sitting on your bed and it’s speeding down a racetrack while four people in wacky costumes push you along? We checked our dream dictionary, and it means you should sign up for the 2012 AZ Bed Race. Held by Bridging AZ Furniture Bank, the contest involves rolling professionally built beds up and down a 100-yard course. Sleeper squads consist of four bed-pushers and one rider who race against the clock like a dozing bobsled team. With prizes awarded for creativity, fastest time, and a people's choice award, it’ll make getting out of bed on Saturday, February 25, worth it.
