Frank Lynch and Antonio Douglas

Frank Lynch, owner of the Cactus Car Wash, talks with his friend and regional manager, Antonio Douglas, about Frank’s concerns over Antonio’s high weight. Eventually Frank, 70, challenged the younger man to a foot race beating him the first time they ran, but following a year of training, Antonio, 45, emerged victorious the next time they ran.
