Red Team Too Scores Pole in DARPA Challenge

Carnegie Mellon University's Red Team Too, an expansion squad of the group considered last year's favorites in the DARPA Challenge, have snagged the #1 qualifying slot in this year's race, despite managing to flip their robo-Hummer (didn't we see that in the back of an issue of High Society once?) earlier in the trials. In a one-three punch, Sandstorm, CMU's other Hummer (and the closest thing to a victor last year), will start third. The creepy, headless OshKosh Terramax was the slowest qualifier. Now let's see if any of these lumbering beasts can get farther than 7 1/2 miles this time around.
