Steve Williams is the man we thank for telling us about the Mud Motorsports complex. Running in three different classes, Steve kept busy piloting his high-powered big-block Ford through the pits all day and even managed to score Second Place in the Renegade division.

When it comes to nonstop entertainment it's hard to beat a good old-fashioned mud race. From the roar of the 2,000hp unlimited dragsters ripping through the slop to the daily drivers and beater Jeeps battling the trenches, mud racing is simply a blast to watch. Avid four-wheel enthusiast Darrel and Deborah Jones created the Lee County Mud Motorsports complex in Sanford, North Carolina, as a place to bring family fun, entertainment, and competitive mud racing together.

Whether you are a first-time wheeler or a veteran racer, the complex has a spot for you. With a variety of classes to run in, you don't need much more than four wheels and a brief safety inspection to race through the pit. Designed as a hole and hill raceway, there is no shortage airborne 4x4s and skyscraping mud clumps.

So if you're close to the Carolinas and looking to get your mud fix and possibly win a little cash racing, check out

Heavy Hitter
Darrel and Deborah Jones are the ones in charge of the Lee County Mud Motorsports complex, and they have an arsenal of mud dragsters all named after the Scooby Doo cartoon series. One of the stars of their fleet is Darrell's 2,300hp Ranger. Blasting through in a time of 4.583 seconds, Darrell easily took home First Place in the unlimited division.
