SAINT JO, TX (KAUZ) -

Rednecks with Paychecks in an annual event that takes place in Saint Jo, Texas. Thousands of people fill the town to camp, cookout and compete in four nights of mud filled fun. 

The event includes truck racing, jeep crawling and other competitions. Organizers involved, when they found out about Hurricane Harvey and the destruction is left behind, jumped into action. 

They used some of their own large vehicles and boats to help out people in need down in southeast Texas. Derrick Morse said the natural disaster could impact the event this year. 

"Who knows? I would think it would hurt us some and have some impact. Even the fuel numbers when we were down in the Houston, Port Arthur area people were calling me from home saying we're out of fuel. Yet down there no one was out of fuel and fuel was $2.20 a gallon. It's kind of crazy how you know A affects B and B affects C but I would think it's not going to help us," Morse said. 

Morse is thankful he and many other Rednecks with Paychecks officials were able to help out how they could. As for the upcoming event, Morse said he is still expecting it to be a fun filled as one's in the past. 

The action will kick off Thursday, September 14. For more information click here.
