Boggin' Is Alive And Well In Florida
Mud events are big news around the country, and rightly so--they are a blast. We usually have no idea what we are in for when we jump on a plane and head off to a mudfest, except we know we're always in for a great time. Being truck guys, we're certain it has something to do with the hundreds of uniquely and heavily modified rigs and furious 4x4 action--oh, and the fact that 99.9 percent of the participants and spectators have a smile on their face and mud in their teeth.
Mudders come out of the woodwork, and usually before the gate to the event opens there's already a line a mile or two long. By midday thousands of participants are enthusiastically flogging their trucks like rental cars. The mud events at Lakeland Motor Sports Park in Lakeland, Florida, are no exception. This year the park's Muddy Muddy Christmas Races and Bog drew an astounding 4,000 people and a few hundred mud trucks and vehicles. This is one of the largest mud events of the year in this part of the country. Trucks of every size, shape, and form went screaming down the mud drag or swimming window-deep in some of the thickest goo we've experienced in a while.
If you haven't been to a Lakeland mud event yet, it's an occasion we highly recommend--and just like us, we know they will keep you coming back for more.
