Remember Mr. Peanut from the 2020 Cardboard Classic? His real name is Mike Javorka and if you missed the news or the GoFundMe’s we supported we would like you to know that he is okay.
Last March, Mike, dressed as Mr. Peanut, tied on a set of cardboard skis and went down the hill in front of his team’s Peanutmobile Sled. The 1000lb cardboard monstrosity was supposed to launch after Mike made it safely to the bottom. Instead, the sled went early caught up to Mike very quickly and pinned him underneath. Folks worked quickly to rescue Mr. Peanut, but he came out of the ordeal with a broken jaw and months away from work. But like we said at the beginning, he is back to full health and doing well.
Best of all, Mike never lost his sense of humor. His Instagram page is filled with photos taken on that day plus all of the other sleds his team has built over the years. So, when this virtual competition came together, the Nutbulance was a perfect choice for the Sled Heads team out of Harleysville.
So perfect in fact that it won them first place which entails bragging rights for a year and this magnificent trophy from our friends at Acme Corrugated Box. Visit the Cardboard Classic Home Edition page to see all of the magnificent sleds that entered this year.
