More than 30 people in identical, inflatable tyrannosaurus rex costumes lined up like thoroughbreds at the Emerald Downs racetrack in Auburn, Washington, in between regular horse races, and took off down the track, their T-rex heads bouncing hilariously. A video posted to Facebook on July 6 has gone viral.

The race has taken place every year for the past three years, and the dinos are employees of Tri-Guard Pest Control. The racetrack’s president, Phil Ziegler, told USA Today that he’s been approached by numerous people and organizations asking how they can participate.
