Mud Racing (also known as mud bogging, mud running, mud drags, or mudding):

  • Form of off-road motorsport -- popular in US and Canada

  • Goal is to drive a vehicle through a pit of mud of a set length

  • Winners are determined by the distance traveled through the pit. However, if several vehicles are able to travel the entire length, the time taken to traverse the pit will determine the winner.

  • Typically, vehicles competing in mud races are four-wheel drives.

  • The motor sport is overseen by sanctioning bodies like the American Mud Racing Association, Mud Racers Association and the National Mud Racing Organization (NMRO), that oversee each class, develop and maintain the relationship with track owners to provide a racer and fan-friendly facility, ensure the sponsors get a good return, and help govern the sport.
