Five bathtub races provided heady competition for young people at the Purdy Festival. The Wheaton Bulldogs team, at right, with Xander Parker, driving, and his brother Zeth Parker, both visiting their cousin, Garrett Keith, pushing, advanced to the finals, beating Five Dragons, with Hayden Cowan driving and Critter Montoya and Denilson Deleo pushing. The Bulldogs wore out on their third race and lost to the Tigers, with Skyler Barber, Seth Peterson and Mason Jones racing their second sprint, for the title. Murray Bishoff/Cassville Democrat
