The Flavor of Mud



By: Christine McLean


I took a sip from my cup of coffee, got in the truck, and made my way down the road to Cartersville Virginia, where I would be helping photograph the backwoods event, Bodatious. It was still dark, being I left so early in the morning in order to arrive at Bodatious before any of the events started. I was jamming to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and my stomach had butterflies not only from being slightly nervous, but also because I was so excited. I had heard about Bodatious for years from friends, but I never managed to make it out there, so I was finally going to experience it. I made my way off exit 167 and hit a few pretty backroads just as the sun was coming up above the trees. It was such a pretty area, and I was imaging what the Motorsports Park would look like and where it was. I saw Boston Hill Road and made my turn. It was at the end of a long dirt road in a bunch of open fields, which I expected, and I saw nothing but trucks. It was like a dominos effect but only in truck form all lined up one after the other. I parked the truck by a tree and got out and took a deep breath of the cool crisp morning air, and wandered around to see where everything was. The motor cross was supposed to start around 9:00 am, so I had a little bit of time to prep my camera and get the feel for everything I would be doing that day. People were starting to wander around and get moving that had been camping there for the whole weekend, and the sound of car and truck engines revving up gave me cold chills because they sounded so good. I moseyed around and got some images of the fans that were coming in and some of the vendors that were setting up. 9:00 finally came around and the guys who would be racing were starting to line up near the entrance of the track. There were of all age groups, and they all had their 4 wheelers pumped up and ready to go. I could not wait to see them take off and race around the track getting muddy, and going over the jumps. Thankfully, there were not many bad wrecks, only minor ones. Around 11:00, there was a good breaking point so I took a little break and went up to the truck to eat lunch. Everyone there was so friendly, and most of them had been coming to Bodatious for years so they told me stories of crazy things that had happened years ago. It was really interesting meeting people and hearing different stories. The sun finally warmed up that April air, and made the temperature quite pleasant for the occasion. The sand drags were next and I was really looking forward to them. The aroma in the air smelled like high octane and it brought back memories of my dad’s drag racing days. I found a spot right by the starting line and waited as each car pulled up to take off. I captured the dirt flying in the air making a “rooster tail”. The engines were so loud that it almost tickled my ears when they took off. It was very exciting. The day went on and the mudbogs were about to start. The bulldozer was preparing the pit for the trucks to run their enormous tires through the slippery mud. I stood by the guardrail and waiting impatiently for the trucks to start coming, and I wished that I could be the one running a truck through there instead. The crowd was getting rowdy and it seemed like they had been waiting all day for this event. One after the other, Chevrolets, Dodges, Fords, you name it were running through the pit. The mud would spray up in the sky like 4th of July fireworks, and you had to watch out because you would get splattered if you did’nt. It soon got dark and the air again cooled off, but the night sky was so pretty with all of the stars shining. The Baldy McGreggor Band was performing a bunch of classic and southern rock songs, and they really rocked. They sang some Lynyrd Skynrd, Tom Petty, Hank Williams, and all of the good songs to get down to on a Saturday night. The crowd was really into the band and everyone was singing and dancing. The night finally got old, and it was time for me to hit the road. I was very tired, but satisfied with the shots that I had gotten. Bodatious was funner than I had imagined, and I would love to go back whether making images or just going to have a good time.
