On the Road: Nisswa Turtle Races

Turtles don’t exactly barrel down the race track, but crowds love to watch them try. See why Turtle Master Mark Ulm calls Nisswa, Minnesota’s annual turtle races “small town America at its best.”

My name is Mark Ulm and I am the Turtle Master of the Nisswa Turtle Races. Every Wednesday throughout the summer, we have people come into town and they race turtles here. We had 459 racers today. This is small-town America at its best.
