JCB MudFest is – RUN.RIDE.PARTY! And the Post Race Party will begin as soon as the first teams are finishing in our Party Pit where you can watch the finish and enjoy food and drinks. Food and drink is available for the race participants as part of your registration fee.

Spectator food and drink bracelets will be available for purchase at the event OR you can pre-purchase an all-inclusive spectator pass on the event registration site.
LIVE MUSIC IN THE PARTY PIT!
Junkyard Angel is a honky-tonk-infused collection of musicians and talent’s featuring Stewart Marshall (Stewart and Winfield) on vocals and guitar, his brother Jim Marshall (Backwoods, Songwriter) on vocals and guitar, Scotty Rahn on Lead Guitar and Vocals, Scott Tanner on bass, Joe Ippolito (of Ex-Geffen Recording Artists, Remy Zero) on drums, and occasionally Allan Hughes (Athen’s GA multi-instrumentalist) on Pedal Steel/Fiddle/Lap.
Junkyard Angel features old school country and rock that is drawing on the likes of Gram Parsons, Johnny Cash, Crazy Horse and the Flying Burrito Brothers with a good bit of Rolling Stones’ “Goat’s Head Soup” era colored outside the lines. Basically a ton of fun and such with some heartfelt, boot scootin’, countrytonk.
The band is currently in and out of the studio and playing on a semi-regular basis in and around Charleston, Savannah and Athens and putting final touches on their CD that has been in the works since Stewart, Scotty and Jim first started the project back in 2005 with lost members David Nickel (Bloodkin, Stewart and Winfield) and Rick Williams (Bloodkin, Park Bench Trio, Blues Olympics).
Come out and enjoy the band as the featured entertainment in the JCB MudFest Party Pit, Saturday June 20th from 9am-1pm.
