The race will be this Saturday and Verizon is giving away six Droid Incredibles which will run Android 2.2 OS to the winners. Full details after the break.

The first-place team will receive $3,000, two Droid Incredibles, and a two $125 Verizon gift cards. The second-place team will receive $1,500, two Droid Incredibles, and a two gift cards as well. Third will receive $500 along with the phones and gift cards. Sounds like a pretty cool contest and kind of like the show Amazing Race shown on ABC. I would have definitely entered if I was in the Seattle area, who doesn't want a lil bit of a challenge plus the opportunity to win some cash and phones. You can check out the full details on Verizon's website. Via [Verizon Urban Challenge]
