Every year, America's largest chain of drive-in restaurants holds a national competition to honor the best carhops in the business. This year, a judge called the eight finalists one of the best groups they'd ever seen at nationals.
Beth Kempf is a super Sonic skater that has a lot to be proud of. There are more than 3,500 Sonic drive-in's across the United States and Sonic carhops serve more than 3 million customers a day.
Hundreds and hundreds of carhops would love to have been in San Diego in mid-September showing off their skating skills. Beth Kempf made it happen, "I've been roller skating since second grade."
Beth is serious about roller skating, "I worked at the skating rink for four years and it wasn't just a hang out to me, I went there to skate. I love skating cause I've been doing it since I was a kid and I'm good at it, so I might as well keep doing it."
This 2012 Beatrice High School grad says there are 2 reasons why carhopping is a perfect job for her, "Because I get to be on my skates all day and I get to talk to people. I like to talk a lot. That's what my parents said when I got the job. They said well, 'You get to talk and you get to skate, so nothing better I guess.'"
The Sonic skate-off takes place annually and Beth's 2 minute entry video and some solid 'shoot the duck' won her a trip to nationals where she competed against 7 other carhops and nailed the obstacle course, "The most important part of the skating course was you had to carry food and you couldn't drop it."
A solid effort in the freestyle portion of the championship earned this 19 year old a silver medal, "I was definitely excited."
