THE COMPETITION

Vehicle must be equipped with and driver must wear both a seat belt and helmet during competition.

Vehicle’s front wheels are on the start line. A flagman waves a flag and a timer begins. Another flagman is positioned at the end of the track and waves a flag when the vehicle crosses the finish line. Timekeeper stops the timer and notes the time (to the nearest tenth of a second) that it took for the vehicle to complete the course.

If the vehicle fails to complete the course, a judge waves a flag signaling that forward motion has ceased. Time and distance traveled into the mud will be measured to the nearest inch at that point.

If vehicle runs sideways, or out of track, judge will signal driver to stop. Vehicle will be disqualified.

Winners in each class will be determined based upon fastest completion time. In the event that any or all vehicles fail to complete the course, ranking will be based first on distance, then on time.

 Limited to 150 trucks time permitting
