Spectators cheer as a pickup truck splashes through mud at an event formerly called the Redneck Olympics on Saturday, July 30, 2016, in Hebron, Maine. The organizer now calls the event the "Redneck Blank" after Olympic officials complained about the name.
The event, now officially known as the Redneck (Blank) after the real Olympics threatened to sue, also featured bobbing for pigs feet, a greased watermelon haul and toilet seat horseshoes.
If thats not redneck enough, then there was a wife-hauling contest and free mud runs for big-tired trucks.
Organizer Harold Brooks said its all about regular folks having fun without airs of pretentiousness.
