GRCF Terrapin Race 2019: Cason McLean, Alex Phelps & Aiden Henderson take overall top prizes

Cason McLean won the Grand Finale Race; Alex Phelps was runner-up; and Aiden Henderson finished in third place.

A total of 295 terrapins and nearly as many smiling children gathered around the basketball court to take part in the annual terrapin race at the 2019 Green River Catfish Festival.  Always a crowd favorite, the event featured 18 “Heat” Races with first, second and third place finishers receiving cash prizes - $15, $10 and $5, respectively.  First place finishers in each heat race then competed in the Grand Finale Race for the top payout of $45 for first, $35 for second and $30 for third place, as will as custom trophies provided by R.B. Griffith
