    MUD BOG Added To the Monster Truck Show

    "Can you picture this - Mud flying 30 feet in the air, tires spinning, and engines screaming with the driver’s foot standing on the gas, well from the Bad Boys of Racing it is HOT ROD MUD BOG DRAG RACING ACTION! " (from

    On the minds of the fans of Monster Trucks shows is the show this weekend at the Wicomico Youth and Civic Center sponsored by Checkkered Flag Productions. These Monster Trucks have won the hearts of fans of all ages and beginning Friday night, then Saturday afternoon and ending Saturday evening these monstrous trucks will keep all their fans on their feet yelling and begging for MORE!

    This year it won't just be the Monster Trucks they're screaming MORE for!!
    The MUD BOG has been added.

    span >
    Mud Bog Racers are excited about this!

    So, of course when certain people from the 123 East Performance/Bowden Racing Team heard about it they just had to jump on board.

    If you are a follower of the Gumboro Mudbog you will recognize the names Laurie Ann (Long) Sturgis and now husband Lee. They each drive the Grey Ghost. They will be competing and I can't wait to see who will drive the Grey Ghost through the mud since only one trip through the mud is allowed. Good luck, guys. The Grey Ghost participated in several classes during the season of the Gumboro Mudbog. It's a fast truck and one to watch as it hits the mud!
    Another Gumboro Mudbog participator is Patrick Long driving his All Night Soldier. During the season Patrick participated in different classes of mudracing and was the 1st place winner in the Prostock class plus the 2nd place winner in Big-tire Prostock. Keep your eyes wide open on All Night Soldier. Keep your eyes on him.

    Then last but never least is Kelly Hubbard. It saddens me that I don't have a photo of his truck High Voltage. I can tell you that Kelly drove High Voltage at both Crisfield and Gumboro during the past season and ended with a 2nd place win in Small-tire modified. In this class ending the season with a second place win was NOT an easy feat for this guy. So pay attention when he makes his attempt to glide through the mud.

    If you have never seen mudbogging before you are in for a surprise IF indoor mudbogging is anything like it is outside.

    And I'm quite sure there will be others from the surrounding area waiting to throw mud 30 feet or more in the air.

    Good luck to all of you and be safe.<>
