Here's a different kind of sport to check out a short drive from Rockford, it's turtle races.

I've watched all kinds of different kinds of animals compete in racing.

My list includes horses, dogs, pigs, hermit crabs, hamsters, and frogs.

Never have I ever witnessed or ever heard of turtle races but I guess it's a thing.

There's a place in Palatine, Illinois called Durty Nellies. According to their Twitter page, they are hosting turtle races.

I definitely think that would be worth checking out.
