Jamaica, VA – With over 2 ½ inches of rain already and a forecast for 90% of storms both today and tomorrow, officials at The Pit at Virginia Motor Speedway have made the tough decision to cancel the 11th Annual Mud Mayhem Mud Bog presented by James River Equipment and WhosYourDriver.org.

“We never want to cancel an event, but with the amount of rain we have had, and the wet weekend forecast we have to think of the safety of our competitors and fans,” commented General Manager Clarke Sawyer.

Sawyer added, “The soaked grounds and rain make it almost impossible to get the competitor rigs parked as well as the aluminum grandstands becoming very slick when wet, it is all about the safety of all involved.”

A special thanks to James River Equipment, WhosYourDriver.org, Aaron’s, Atkins Petroleum & Propane, After Hours Fabrication, Collision One, Gary’s Transmission and Truckin Thunder for all their support of our mud bog program.

The next event for Virginia Motor Speedway will be back over at the dirt track as the speedway hosts week 5 of Aaron’s Dirt Series Championship weekly racing on Saturday June 2nd.

The Pit at VMS is located on the grounds of Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway and is situated on U.S. Route 17, eight miles north of Saluda, VA and 25 miles south of Tappahannock, VA. The Speedway is just a short drive from Richmond, Fredericksburg, Southern Maryland and the Hampton Roads area.

      There is no rain date, we do not have a suitable date that would fit into our dirt track schedule and also not book on top of another mud bog.
