In what was a long-running comic trip beginning in 1907, cartoonist Bud Fisher created the concept of two mis-matched characters, Mutt and Jeff. Over a decade ago, two almost similarly unlikely friends, Paul Burruss and Dylan Griffey began racing together known as Mutt and Jeff.
Now seven years later, their Mutt & Jeff Promotions Races have been on the minds of bracket racers in the northeast corner of the country.
