Nats' Presidents Race disrupted by severe weather event -- a Sharknado

Friday night's Presidents Race at Nationals Park featured a surprise sixth contender. Ronald Reagan? Too soon. Millard Fillmore? No way. George W. Bush? Maybe if they were hosting the Rangers.

The mystery challenger was none other than Sharknado, from the SyFy original movie of the same name (not to be confused with Dinoshark, Sharktopus or Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus which -- somehow -- also exist). Though Sharknado successfully toppled four of his competitors, the Lincolnado ultimately prevailed.

We have one question: Is Sharknado planning to run in 2016?
