On a warmer than warm Sunday afternoon, the National Railsplitting competition took place at the Abraham Lincoln National Railsplitting Festival in Lincoln. After the hot and sweaty competition, the guys took time for a group photo with Abraham Lincoln. This year there were some familiar faces among the winners.

Left to right are Lincoln, fourth place finisher Evan Coombs, second place finisher Jonathon Norin, third place finisher Curtis Prochnow and the big winner, placing first this year was Chris Friedlein.
