More About This episode

Americans' competitive spirit reveals itself in some wacky ways, like the coffin race in Nederland, Colorado, which is dedicated to a dead guy and brings new meaning to the term "frozen stiff." Or the National Snow Sculpting Competition in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, where snowmen go high-end while temperatures hit record lows. Then there's the Kinetic Sculpture Race in Baltimore, Maryland, where crazy contraptions speed across a gritty land and sea racecourse. And don't forget Spamarama, a festival in Austin, Texas, which centers on, what else-SPAM!
