Dave and Lacey Castro of Lewiston came in first among 41 teams to win Saturday's competition at Sunday River ski resort in Newry. They covered the 278-yard course in 54.45 seconds.
For their effort, the couple won 97-pound Lacey Castro's weight in beer and five times her weight in cash _ $485.
Teams from 11 states competed in the 10th annual race in which a man has to carry a woman, or vice versa, over an obstacle course.
As the North American champs, the Castros are eligible to compete in the world championships in Finland next July.
