Scott Smith, President of High Lifter Products, said the 10th anniversary of the signature mud riding event was a huge success. Im 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 Creeks continuous improvements and expertise, this event would not be what it is today.
