Our ever intrepid Texas photo contributor Charles Wickam hit the Matagorda County Mud Drags over Memorial Day weekend, and they hit back. Charles caught a big ol hunk of Texas gumbo upside his noggin while shooting these photos! He said that the event was bitchin’ and there was some really heavy iron on the grounds of the facility.
We really dig the bare bones construction of these trucks and rails. They are all backing big horsepower, one with a blown Hemi and at least one other with a big honking Rodeck motor on its back, as well. Designed to run down a course that is only a couple hundred feet long, it takes light weight, huge power, and steep gears to sling the slop and get from A to B before the dude in the other lane!
