The first truck/car mud racing competition of the year begins at the Rockwall County Mud Bog this Saturday, March 21.
The gates open at 10 am and races begin at Noon at the “Runnin’ Wild” Ranch, located off Hwy. 276, about 9 miles south of Rockwall – halfway between Rockwall and Quinlan. Nine classes of track and car races will continue through about 6 pm, with breaks in between classes.

The entry fee is $35 per vehicle. According to owners KayAnn and Skip Butler, the 1st thru 3rd fastest vehicles in each class will win money as a prize. The winners pot will be determined by how many entry fees are received, plus how many spectators come who pay an admission fee to watch.
The admission fee is $10 per adult. Children ten and under at free. Last year, between 500 and 600 spectators attended each race, KayAnn said.
Spectators and racers are welcome to bring lawn chairs, blankets, food and drinks-including your own beer.
A concession stand is also available, which sells hot dogs, sausages, nachos, candy, snow cones and sodas.
