PETERSBURG-AK Twelve young daredevils sped down PFI hill in Petersburg Saturday for the annual Humpy-500 Go-cart race. It was the fifteenth year of the popular local event which is sponsored by Icicle Seafoods and other local businesses. Drivers and pit crews build their sea-themed carts with a 55-gallon drum and a variety of wheels and hardware. The top prizes go to the teams with the most creative costumes and carts. This year, the designs included a pirate ship, a blowfish, a sockeye salmon, and a spot-shrimp. Matt Lichtenstein produced this audio-postcard of the event:
