WILCHER PICKS UP WIN AT SWAINSBORO MUDBOG
The Swainsboro Mudbog continues to stifle the competitors each and every week not allowing a single mudbogger to get within 50’ of its 200’ length. It has been six weeks since any truck has been able to defeat the monster pit. Who will be the first? Who will be the best? If you think you have what it takes to defeat the 200’ monster pit, come out to the Swainsboro Mudbog and try your luck. There are eight classes to choose from, a 100% entry fee payback and one class even gets a weekly $300.00 split bonus.
Friday night’s action saw Joey McCullough make the return trip from Folkston, Georgia and power his way to a first place finish in his 1984 Jeep with a distance of 128’ 4” in the Modified Class. Jesup, Georgia’s Shawn Landon came in second place driving his high octane 1982 Toyota to a distance of 116’ 8” and current point’s leader in the Modified Class, Van Montelpasse, of Collins placed third with his 1989 Chevy Blazer with a run of 112’ 9”.
