Mullet Militia!!!

There was a time when the Blackwater 100 was America's premier off-road race too.  LOL.

I remember reading abou the BlackWater 100 in Dirtwheels in my teen years.

It's no longer going, they cancelled it...land lost to..something or other.

I am not sure if I would openly admit to reading Dirt Wheels magazine.   ;D

Environmentalist shut it down after multiple attempts.  First they thought it was on public land but then come to find out it was on private land (mostly owned by the power company).  They eventually used river contamination (excessive amounts of toxins a.k.a. urine) as a reason to shut the race down; which is too bad as the annual race meant a lot to the local economy and charities.

fun little things gleaned from watching that. brenden may have owned a quad that was in that movie. he had a 1993 bob sloan race quad, that looked just like the one pictured and also had a crazy low end port job on it. also pretty interesting seeing both caleb russells dad and aaron plessingers dads. guys i wouldnt have known at all in 1993 but their kids are some of the biggest names in off road racing today.
