Lol not quite..
A Pickle Race is when 2 friends eat in at McDonalds for example, to have a race you must
1: Sit by a window
2: Each contestant must have a pickle in hand
Upon hearing "Go" you both throw your pickles at the window...the pickles slide down the window, the pickle that slides the farthest down the window wins
It typically helps if the pickle has a lubricant such as ketchup or mustard for slideability
