Unannounced Race

Boom Boom has found he can always win an unannounced race, so why should he let anyone else know what is about to happen?

Wonder if anyone else is ready to start this unannounced race?

Hu-Dad and Landon were hanging out in the yard when Landon suddenly took off at a fast run and rambled up the steps. Hu-Dad was a little surprised to discover that a game had started.

As Landon celebrated his win, Hu-Dad pointed out it was easy to win an unannounced race, but the Boomster said that was a technicality. A win is a win.

I won. I won. I won.
I won. I won. I won.
