After the incredibly cold winter we had, cooped up inside the cab of our General of Winter build, when the calendar flipped to March and we saw the Texas Mud Nationals on the calendar, there was no doubt in our mind. We booked our flights down to Texas, and wandered over to Jacksonville to take a look at this one of a kind event. It had been a few years since we had the chance to check out the custom bikes roaming the hills of Mud Creek Off Road Park, and needless to say, we certainly weren’t disappointed.

Of course the amphibious ARGO drove circles around any of its mud pit challengers.
Custom interiors with enough speakers to blow the roof clean off this ride
