BESSEMER - The weather was clear and warm as the Bessemer Blast 2015 festivities continued on Saturday.

The morning included the annual Hometown Run/Walk and Tot Trot, and events held at the Sophie Street Pocket Park, including kid's games, dance lessons, face painting and pony rides.

In the afternoon, attention turned to the Lake States Mud Run at the pit on North Moore Street.

Spectators, armed with sun block, braved the warm temperatures to watch the mud fly.

Races were scheduled in several classes, including: Pure Stock Class (entry level class for unmodified trucks), Stock Class (primary class for dedicated mud race vehicles with a street legal body, Super Stock (allows more modifications to a stock vehicle), Pro Stock (purpose built race vehicles), Women's (allows pure stock, street stock and super stock to be raced together with a woman driver), Modified, Unlimited and Consistency class (racers compete with any truck with their own reaction times).

Organizers are planning additional mud runs around the region. New racers are welcome. For more information, contact Keith Tippett at president@lakestatesmudracers.com, Theron Rutyna at vp@lakesstatesmudracers.com, or Andy Tijan at secretary@lakesstatesracers.com
