cut and pasted from there forums any screw ups is there fault not mine
yesterday was the mudfest, they are planning on doing another one later this year, hopefully they fix a few "issues". for the most part it was pretty good, my neighbor took 1st place in the stock 6cylinder class and another friend took 2nd in the modified 8 cylinder class. they had more rigs than they expected to, the night before they had only had 18 rigs pre-register, they ended up with over 100 rigs. heres some pics
this guy came in on rockwells
this was a monster truck that some one brought out, he ran over some cars, went through the mud, and even ramped off the cars
this was the most stock rig out there and driven by a woman, she shocked everyone by making it through the pits twice when other rigs got stuck just before her.
I was in the stands where it was cold and windy, the event started an hour and a half late, there were 3 toilets for 1000 plus spectators, the concessions were completely overwhelmed and stock rigs made it through the pit with little trouble. The monster truck scored 5 out of 30 points. It was a first, but for me it was a last. This event was completely swamped in it's own success.
yah there were some issues that we all hope they fix for the next go round, there were issues on the racers side also.
since i cant seem to figure out how embed videos heres a link to them
