Father of five wins roller coaster endurance race
Richard Dickson hopes the ride will be smoother in his new car after riding a roller coaster for almost 53 hours.
The 37-year old father of five won a two-year lease on a car after outlasting 18 contestants on the historic "Twister Two" roller coaster at Six Flags in Denver. The competition started Sunday morning, with the coaster stopping every three hours to give contestants some time to eat, sleep and answer the call of nature.
It all ended this Tuesday afternoon when Dickson's lone remaining competitor said she had enough. His roller coaster ride covered some 757 miles.
