Extreme Barbie Jeep Racing is a combination of soapbox derby and demolition derby and is definitely not for the faint of heart. Races begin at the top of a hill, where two racers go head-to-head wearing nothing but a motorcycle helmet for protection. The “cars” have been stripped of their power gears and motors, so all the drivers can do is steer.
There are no brakes, unless you count your arms and legs as brakes. The winner is the first person to make it down the hill — by any means necessary.
The sport’s popularity has taken off because…well obviously because grown-ass men can ride down hills at speeds of more than 25 miles per hour. But since there’s no gears and no motors, the riders are at the whims of the hill they ride on, which levels the playing field for everybody.
