A whole lot of family fun kicked off at the mud buggy racing competitions at Roma's Easter in the Country over the weekend.

Several cars from across Queensland got down and dirty at the mud pits on Bungil Street, an event that runs annually.

There were some talented drivers and fast cars, including Stewart Smith who is fourth in Australia and holds a National Title in mud racing.

His daughter Krysty Smith said they come out to Roma religiously for the event.

"I've been racing for about 12 years and have competed against dad previously, but today I jumped in with him and had some fun because my clutch blew in my little pink car," she said.

"It's so much fun, we travelled down from Bajool as a family. My brother also does drag races, and my daughters will hopefully get into it as they get a bit older.

"It's just a really great community, family event and there's a lot of laughs."

Similarly, Kerri Ward and Luke Pomeroy with their six children also travelled from Bajool.

"Unfortunately, I think I broke my gearbox today but that's ok, it's just a great atmosphere here and we go out and have some fun," Mr Pomeroy said.

"It's a different sport definitely, but we are able to travel to a few places through it and it's very community-orientated.

"With six kids, we should have a couple of junior teams coming along," he joked.
