The game was accidentally invented at a tailgate at the 2001 Indy 500 by Chris Hutt (Chutt) and his friends as a hybrid of football, bowling and horseshoes. From that one lane the game grew to two lanes, to backyards, to tournaments, to Detroit Lions tailgates in Eastern Market and a 14,000 square foot warehouse on Van Dyke near Davison in Detroit.
