The biggest mud bog in The Pit at Virginia Motor Speedway's history is Saturday, October 8th. To say that officials are excited and anxiously awaiting the running of the 18th Annual Run-A-Muck Mud Bog presented by Estes Express Lines and Breezeline.

There will be eight "Mud Maniacs" classes competing, ranging from super stock to Mega Truck, with cash payouts in all eight divisions. Competitors are encouraged to visit www.thepitatvms.com for the rules packages and payouts.
