We are doing it again, y’all! On October 2nd, Mortimer’s Island will once again come to life with the crowd pleasing, truck roaring mayhem that is the 17th Annual Weiser Mud Drag races!
As always, driver gate opens at 6am, where all our racers will get ‘tech’d’ in, fill out entry forms, and give each other lots of grief. Our people will divide them up into classes and make sure they’re good to run. Spectators will start coming in when the gates open at 9am (5 and under still free!) and we expect to fill up FAST. Races at 10am and from then on it’s gonna get LOUD.
Kids Dash For Cash, the Adult Dirty Dash, Tug of War, Beer Garden, all our amazing vendors … this is going to be SO much fun!!
And the FOOD—OMGoodness! Payette Valley Riders will be back with burgers and dogs, Kettle Corn, Cook Shack will be handling our alcohol AND they will have some of their amazing smoked items there too, Elk’d Up …and that’s just the ones we know of right now. Please remember we want our vendors to do well too so please—NO OUTSIDE COOLERS. Do remember your sunscreen, bug spray, and lawn chairs. Oh, and if your kids are entering the Dash for Cash, you’ll want a big garbage bag or two to protect your vehicle on the trip home.
Couldn’t do this without the amazing Weiser Mud Committee and the City of Weiser Fire & Rescue Volunteer Assoc. We get bigger and badder every year and while the drivers and spectators do more than their share—bless them—our incredible people are working like crazy to get ‘er done too. If you see someone in a pink t-shirt, say thank you! If you see someone wearing a fire department shirt—thank them too! And the Weiser Ambulance crew! And Weiser City Police! Heck, thank everyone!
WE’RE SO GLAD TO BE BACK!!!
