Homecoming Car Push to be Held Today

Oct. 13, 2006

LARAMIE, Wyo. -

Fans are invited to come and watch the 2006 University of Wyoming Homecoming Car Push today, Oct. 13 at the south west ramp of War Memorial Stadium.

The event is free, open to the public and begins at 2:30 p.m.

Teams consisting of athletics department student-athletes and staff will compete for the fastest time by pushing a compact car from the lower level of the stadium, up the ramp to the upper concourse in either a 800 lb class or 1000 lb weight class.

The timed trials on the Friday prior to Homecoming are a UW tradition started from a bet between the skiing and wrestling teams over 30 years ago.
