PIERRE (AP) — People are once again racing homemade, mobile outhouses in a western South Dakota event known as the Nemo 500.

Co-founder Troy Saye says a small crowd of around 100 turned out the first year, despite snowy conditions. The event has drawn as many 1,100 people in recent years, and he expects about a dozen teams will take part in the eighth annual race this year.

Proceeds will go to the Naja Shriners Kids Transportation Fund. There is a raffle as well as silent and live auctions.

The event took place Saturday at the Nemo Guest Ranch northwest of Rapid City.
