It looks like extreme barbie racing is about to make a comeback, if the Internet has anything to say about it. The first event took place a few years back, and somehow it didn’t gain any real traction as a sport. The Internets have been resurfacing the below videos and now it is up to someone to get the sport back on track.
Busted Knuckle Films gives a little more insight into the manly sport:
Barbie Jeep Racing is one of the most dangerous off-road sports per dollar you can possibly get into. It is also the most FUN. How else can you get this much fun out of 15 lbs of plastic! The concept is simple. Take a power-wheels vehicle, break off the drive gear, go to a steep hill, climb aboard and watch the madness unfold. Barbie Jeep Racing is one of our favorite off-road past times. These things can be had for FREE on the side of the road. Believe it or not, People actually throw them out not realizing their full potential. The 2010 RBD event that took place at Morris Mountain ORV in Heflin, Alabama is where we got our first taste of Barbie Jeep Racing. We took home 1st place and are now hooked! Be watching for us to have more downhill barbie jeep races at the off-road events we film in 2011. For now here is how things went down.
