President of High Lifter Products, said the 10th anniversary
of the signature mud riding event was a huge success. “I’m always amazed
at how substantial the ATV Mud Nationals has become in the past 10
years,” Smith said. “What started as a small ride and good,
old-fashioned mud bog has turned into a major destination for riders
from around the world. Without Mud Creek’s continuous improvements and
expertise, this event would not be what it is today.”
During the event,
High Lifter hosted a drawing for a set of Outlaw2 tires
tested by industry magazine ATV Rider. Winning the tires was Tony
Werner from Picayune, MS. High Lifter and RidersEye also hosted a
drawing for an all-new RidersEye GPS Tracking Unit. Winning the unit was
