Muck racers

Mud Bogging in Questa offers family fun in the hot sun

Posted

The loud revving of engines could be heard from miles around. Huge custom mud-ready trucks and race cars decorated the field at Questa’s annual mud bog Saturday (June 10).

With temperatures reaching into the mid-80s, racers and spectators occupied any shade they could find to watch the cars test their speed through the mud pit. The pit itself is 120 feet of thick brown muck prepared a day in advance for the event. Race categories included stock, super stock, modified, super modified and outlaw. Each racer got two runs through the mud. The fastest truck wins, but the truck that displaces the most mud gets the loudest cheer. Let’s just say, there was a lot of cheering.
