Re: July 04, 2000 O\'Fallon, Missouri
This is a mud bog AND
drag. Competition all the way, but we have 11 classes. So, just about anyone could be relatively competitive somewhere in the program. I'll send the rules to your e-mail address, but you can get more details off my web page (the link is below my signature). 4Wheel & Off-Road
was at one of my events last year (in fact, if you look at Matt Heady's flamed Ford in the 03/2000 issue, those pics came from my event), and John Cappa called a few weeks ago to get some final info for the article he's doing on that race. I sort of expect to see the article in the April, May, or June issue.
The bog/drag format works like this. Six of the classes are going to run on a shallow "Fast Track" that's only inches deep. They'll only get credit for their run if they complete it in bounds. All of the classes allowing cut tires will be on this "Fast Track" as will a couple of classes for less-modified machines. "Mudracer" runs the "Street Stock" class with "Mighty Mouse".
The other five classes run the "Pit". There are 3 "street" classes of various modifications, one we call "Outlaw Stock" and a tractor tire class (Altered) that will run the "Pit". The "Pit" is going to be 2-3 feet deep & anyone that doesn't make it through will be measured for distance to get credit for the run. The longest distance in the class is the winner - best time will break a tie for distance. My truck (Mudslide) runs in the 38.0" "Hot Street" class.
If you need any more info, just let me know. I'll go ahead & send you the rules, but you can also see them on my page. Last year, we had racers from Missouri, Illinois, Arkansas, Colorado, Texas, and Indiana at our events in St. Charles. Got some folks from Oklahoma, Kansas, Kentucky, Iowa - and now Florida - inquiring about this year. So, we could have a really nice showing of top machines.
