Mike's Mud Truck Debut
Mike & Robin Lose 2 in a row!!!

Well folks Mike Mellen has a new Mud Bog Truck. We were suprised to see him at the second edition of Big Al's Mud Bogs in Stateline Idaho on May 30th 2009.

We were very excited to see Mike had entered the event. So with much anticipation we waited to see his first race.

The new Mud Bog truck looked pretty tough as it staged for the first round in the Sportsman A class.

The flag dropped and much to our surprise it seemed as if time may have stood still. The competition left the line and Mike's Mud Bog Truck hesitated leaving Mike to lose the race by several seconds.

We were watching the aftermath of that race to see if there was some sort of a problem. It seems that there was some kind of issue with the truck.

Mike gets the Hammer

We kept the camera rolling and much to our dismay Mike had some problem that required a tool to fix. With the hood raised Mike went to his tool box and pulled out a HAMMER!!!! He then proceeded to beat on something in the engine compartment of the truck. After the beating he smiled and shut the hood. All seemed well in the Mellen Pits.

Round two came pitting two drivers who lost the previous round. This put Mike up against his brother Billy.

As the trucks staged we figured maybe Mike has a chance to redeem himself. Then there was a staging issue with Mike's truck. He backed it up and restaged. Then the flag flew.........Mike's truck sat at the line as Billy's roared down the pit to win by a full mud track length. Then Mike's mud truck came to some form of life and finished the race.

Better luck next time Mike.
