Without some form of standardized rules and format it was very difficult if not impossible for racers to travel to or promoters to hold larger events to bring in racers from other areas. These issues discouraged many of the racers from searching for additional and enhanced competition. The prospect of gaining any national recognition for the sport without some form of sanctioning body and unified rules was near impossible. The prospect of a major race series or sponsors to help support the mud racing world seemed out of reach. Racers were calling for unity and consistency in the rules, better safety regulations as well as more growth in the sport. From this we formed the MMA using MRA rules as a guidline to bring better quality shows and consistancy to the midwest district.
The need for an association that would unify mud racing across America was not a new concept by any means, but most will agree that it was a concept whose time had come. Creating a standard set of class rules and safety regulations would allow racers from all parts of the country to compete in National level events without worries of fitting in the class of their choice when they arrive. Now that the rules are standardized, the prospects of offering an event series across the country would be possible. This concept still holds true today.
