Mud Racing Speed Pit

Speed Pit Loftis Memorial Mud Race 2010

Rodney Loftis Jr. honored his father this past September by holding the Rodney Loftis Sr. Memorial Mud Race in Sissonville, West Virginia. There were some great trucks and dragsters there that day and many we had never seen. The track was pretty shallow and dry which lead more to fast runs than bogging. We appreciate Rodney giving us the invite to this special event.

TALA Mud Bog Speed Pit 6-27-10

Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum (TALA) opened up a two lane 150 drag strip this year in place of the Hill n Hole. On this day the WVMRA (West Virginia Mud Racing Association) drivers took mud runs down both sides. We were at Linger Run mud bog the day before but were told they did side by side drag racing that day. TALA also ran their mud pit on this hot June day. This was Cassidy's first time shooting a mud bog. She got her but kicked at first but quickly catches on and gets better and better as the day goes on.

West Virginia Mud Racing Association speed pit race - Gator Hole

The sun beat down on a hot day in June as the racers gathered in Gap Mills, WV at Gator Hole for some fast mud racing. Promoters said the mud pit was shallower than usual which lead to fast times for everyone. The Speed pit saw some of the West Virginia Mud Racing Association's usual suspects of raw power.
