The recent spate of violence and cheating in the Nationals’ presidents race escalated Saturday afternoon at Nationals Park as Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, and George Washington all got into the act.
Thomas Jefferson took an early lead, but Abe Lincoln put a quick end to that by head butting the Sage of Monticello on the warning track.
Standings leader George Washington quickly got back at “Honest” Abe, slamming him into the right field wall and knocking him out of the race.
Season-long losers Teddy Roosevelt and William Howard Taft were hot on Washington’s trail, and as they reached the home stretch, Teddy grabbed Washington from behind and knocked him out, ensuring that one winless president would notch his first victory of the season.
In the second photo finish in as many days, it was newcomer William Howard Taft who leaned forward to break the tape and win his first-ever presidents race at Nationals Park.

One thought on “Video: Taft notches his first-ever presidents race victory, beating Teddy at the wire”
I like that Taft won, i’m not happy that the Nationals then went on to lose. Something tells me that Taft won’t be winning again for awhile.
