Yasky Mud Money

Yasky ATV $10,000 MUD MONEY™ Contingency Program
presented by SIMMS MotorSports Marketing for 2008

The Yasky ATV $10,000 MUD MONEY Contingency Program presented by SIMMS MotorSports took place this past weekend, October 9th - 12th during Gap Broadcasting's Mud Stock held in Jacksonville Texas.
This contingency program was designed to handsomely reward any racer who was able to win both the Class 2 SwampCross race on Friday night and the Class 3 Mud Bog race on Saturday morning. All Championship Mud Racing is single elimination, meaning to advance to the next round of racing you must win.

Forty eight competitors took to the SwampCross race course in Class 2 in hopes of having a shot at winning the $10,000. After 25 rounds of racing including heats, semis and the final, one name rose to the top, Trey Thornton of I-45 Racing on his Can-Am Outlander.

After all that racing Trey had to prep the Can-Am for the next day's racing. Even though he and his team had been up until 1:00am, he was ready and waiting for the 8:00am riders meeting. For Saturday's Mod Bog Trey was facing more than 50 competitors to reach his $10,000 MUD MONEY pay day. During round one Trey won his heat easily, he got the hole shot and never looked back. During round two his line was pinched off leaving the MUD MONEY contender no where to go and he finished third out of five competeing in that semi, ending his day of racing and his shot at the Yasky ATV $10,000 MUD MONEY, at least until next year.

While Trey wasn't able to win the Yasky ATV $10,000 MUD MONEY presented by SIMMS MotorSports we are thrilled to announced he is the CMR 2008 Class 2 SwampCross Points Champion. Congratulations to Trey and the entire I-45 Racing team for an outstanding season.

The 2008 Championship Mud Racing "CMR" schedule included seven competition dates spanning from May through October with points awarded throughout the season in several different competition classes for ATV and SxS Mud Racing.  Competitions included Mud Bog and SwampCross.

Competition aspects of The CMR were overseen by a team led by Jason Coffel, who organized national-level ATV competitions for several years and participated in the growth of the sport, both as an event promoter, organizer, and announcer.

The ultimate goal of The CMR is to see the growth of ATV Mud Racing as a competitive sport and give competitors a pedestal upon which they can receive the recognition from national media and industry sponsors that they have long deserved.  The CMR will also be discussing opportunities for more national media exposure including recent opportunities with national television networks.
