None of the racers expected to be racing in brownie batter during the World Championship Pig-N-Ford race Saturday but early morning rains transformed the track into a swamp.
"You're in for a real thrill," Announcer Mike Bentley said prior to the championship race. "These are some of the worst track conditions I have ever seen."
When the mud settled Jake Martin won the first ever championship for himself and for racer franchise 17. Reigning champion Ben Salo was dethroned by Martin and came in a soggy second while Marty Walker, with a number of championships under his belt, came in third place.
