FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) – 21Alive’s Rachel Martin was asked to participate in an ATV race as part of Fort Wayne’s Regional Maker Faire.

21Alive’s Rachel Martin went head to head in the Media Racing Challenge powered by TekVenture, against personalities from WANE-TV, WFFT, and the Journal Gazette.

Martin and the others raced on ATV’s that traveled at a speedy 7 mph. After five laps around a 500 ft. track lined with hay, Martin took 2nd place to WFFT after running into some hay on the last turn of her second lap.

It was all in good fun, though, as all the participants were rewarded with Mentos.
