High Lifter Mulberry Mud Nationals
November 9th – 12th
If you’ve ever been to a Mud Nationals event you know that High Lifter and their Mud Nats Events team knows how to throw a good party. When we got word of a new Mud Nationals that was right in our backyard we were extremely excited and knew we just had to attend. High Lifter and the Mud Nats Events team brought the mud to Mulberry Mountain in Ozark, Arkansas and pulled off another great UTV event: The High Lifter Mulberry Mud Nationals.
Like any Mud Nats, High Lifter had a ton of fun activities on the schedule, from UTV races and competitions to live music on Friday and Saturday night.
On Thursday, they held the Bad 2Da Bone competition where participants showed off their machines to see who brought the biggest, baddest, most outrageous machine to the event.
The Time Trials Race was on Friday; participants raced around a course that was laid out on a partial track and on through the woods for the best time in their class. It was fun to watch some of these really cool side by sides rip around the track.
The action really heated up on Saturday with the Mudda Cross competition, ATV and UTV racers were put to the test in a head to head race around a mud pit course. The oval track had water depths up to 4 foot, racers ran 3 fast paced laps per race and the fans loved every minute of it.
From t shirts and cozies to winches and even a generator, attendees had several opportunities to take home some great prizes from playing Plinko
Fuel Offroad debuted their brand new Sledge UTV wheel at the event and even had them mounted on a cool, lifted Can Am Maverick Max.
The event takes place at the Mulberry Mountain Lodging & Events campgrounds; the resort offers cabin rentals, RV hookups and a huge area for primitive camping. The event resort even has an amphitheater for concerts as they do host several other festivals throughout the year. The resort is located in the heart of Arkansas’ Ozark National Forest; trail heads, including the popular Mill Creek ATV Trail, branch right off the resort so you can get right to riding. The mountain terrain is very diverse ranging from gravel fire roads to rough and rocky technical trails that feature creek crossings, breathtaking scenic overlooks and waterfalls. Trails range from easy to difficult so there is something for every type of rider. Many trails are marked and mapped however you’ll find several unmarked trails as well.
The first annual High Lifter Mulberry Mud Nationals was a great event, the combination of great riding Mulberry has to offer and the Mud Nats style fun High Lifter brings made this a huge success. We imagine this event will continue to grow and we can’t wait to see what High Lifter has in store for next year. We encourage you to join us and put the 2018 High Lifter Mulberry Mud Nationals on your calendar.
