"The Grey Ghost" Runs At Crisfield Mudhop

The banner across the windshield of "The Gray Ghost" reads 'drive it like u stole it' which is something that has always been told to the drivers of the Bowden Racing Team. 

 And that's what the drivers try to do every time they meet the muddy pit face to face.
However, it's important for everyone to understand that mud sometimes has a mind of it's own.

Lee Sturgis, behind the wheel of "The Grey Ghost" seemed to have no problem heeding  the  'drive it like u stole it' advice on Sunday, May 29, 2011 in Crisfield, Md.

Lee and "The Grey Ghost" ended with a great run! 

Unfortunately, there is no advice on a fast, easy way to remove the dried,  caked on mud that gets carried home.

Gumboro Mudbog Annual Banquet

The second Gumboro Mudbog Banquet for drivers and guests was held on Saturday, March 5, 2011. After a nice meal the drivers that finished with points during the 2010 racing seasons were presented trophies. What really made the evening enjoyable was when the emcee managed to find some odd or unusual stories to tell on quite a few of the drivers and presented them with an award and some hilarious gifts! The banquet committee really outdid themselves this year.

Donald Bowden - Mechanic and the guy that keeps these trucks running week after week and year after year! He's the "go to" guy for the team even if a truck has the hiccups and can be seen alot of times in the pits at Gumboro or Crisfield just about spinning in circles! He gets the job done for the guys. In fact on some race days last season he was so busy that the committee this year awarded Donald with the "Pencil Me In" Award! And I'll bet he uses the little notebook this new season, if he hasn't already!

Thanks Donald for a great racing season last year and for being there for all of us!

And many thanks to the Gumboro Mudbog Committee for another wonder banquet to end another wonderful and fun year of mudbog racing.

Gumboro Mudbog opens April 9th for the first race of the season.
