Local derby team doesn't place

Team Gnomeo, consisting of Al and Tamara Brody and their neighbors Mitch Brown and Sandie Kiddie, spent two months constructing a Smurf-blue, lawn-mower shaped derby car for the competition.

The group took inspiration from box office flop Gnomeo and Juliet for their design.

The top prize this year was awarded to a team from California named Lakers Fanwagon. As a prize the will get to have a up close NASCAR experience with Team Red Bull.
