Mud Bogging

Mud bogging is an off-road sport of the motorsports discipline that involves driving a vehicle through a muddy course. The sport is very popular in the United States and Canada.

The courses used are of many types, like Hill and Hole - usually 60 ft wide and 200ft long courses with a series of hills and mud pits, Flat/Progressive Track - a flat course with a series of sand drags, and Open Bogs - which are natural courses filled with mud.

The vehicles used for mud bogging are all four-wheeled drives and are divided into different classifications based on vehicle size. Drivers race individually to complete the course against a clock. The driver to cover the farthest distance in the course is declared as the winner. In cases where more than one driver is able to complete the entire course, the driver with the fastest time is declared as the winner.

Several mud bogging events are held all through the year. Some of the most popular events are, Barnyard All Terrain, Louisiana MudFest, and South Florida Slingin'. In the Unites States there is a separate television channel called the Mud Truck Television which offers non-stop coverage of the sport.
