We raced in 4 inches of Mud last year! I jumped out to a lap lead in my main and got cocky and took a jump at full speed and when I landed all the mud went right up into my flywheel and shut my engine down Costa Lopez was smart enough to roll all the jumps and won the main by 2 laps over the field. I think he was the last buggy on the track

HOLY SMOKES FRANK!!! Surprised the motor didnt overheat with all that build up and added weight. Bet that was a b*tch to clean up after the race.
