— Tons of fun in Arkansas & Minnesota —

This spring, the High Lifter Mud Nationals changed venues to the Hillarosa ATV Park in Blevins, Arkansas, after more than a decade in east Texas. UTV and ATV enthusiasts competed in the Bad 2 Da Bone night-time show & shine, Mudda-Cross, Bounty Hole mud grudge matches, Texas Off-Road National (TORN) UTV short-course races and a poker run. New this year, participants also could test their handling skills in a UTV soccer match. ATV legend Marty Hart and his son Kyle made the trek from Louisiana to the Mud Nationals, and the two dominated the Polaris UTV short-course racing Pro Turbo class in their Yamaha YXZ1000s, with Marty taking the win ahead of Kyle and Zach Martin for an all-Yamaha Pro podium.

Quadna’s first-ever MB Quart VIP Day was a hit, and overall attendance was the best ever. A 38-mile ride had stops for passing out swag, and then the VIP dinner had a private performance by Matt Farris and the HalfBaked Outlaws.
Quadna had a cash payout of $4800, and the obstacle course had six tough sections for competitors to conquer.

Quadna Mountain Park near Hill City, Minnesota, hosted the Quadna Mud Nationals the second weekend in June. The three-day mud-fest featured a mud bog, obstacle course, sled pull and poker run in addition to all the family fun of camping, riding, concerts, and daily Polaris bag toss (corn hole) for prizes and swag. Quadna was sponsored by Polaris and Can-Am, High Lifter, MB Quart, FXR Racing, EPI Performance, MBRP Powersports, KFI Products, PowerBass, Quad Logic, Rockford Fosgate, Rugged Radios, Tirewiz, Dennis Kirk, and Ray’s Sport and Cycles.

Those not wanting to compete in the Quadna sled pull, obstacle course or mud bog had the poker run, with the last card stop being a Matt Farris concert.
Polaris sponsored the High Lifter Short-Course UTV races, but the Pro Turbo class belonged to Yamaha, with Marty and Kyle Hart going 1-2 and Zach Martin third. Ken Mash won the Pro 1000 class.

Quadna also had a fourth day this year for VIP-pass purchasers who got a VIP trail ride, extra try at RZR bags for prizes, VIP cookout and concert with prize giveaways. The VIP pass was $100 for all four days, while the three-day pass was $75, and daily passes were $40 per day. Camping was $30.

The first Mud Nationals in Arkansas featured a night-time Bad 2 da Bone show-n-shine so contestants could show off lighting as well as paint, lift kits, huge tires and more. High Lifter debuted the 44-inch Outlaw 3 mud tire at Quadna.
Mudda-Cross features undulating terrain submerged in muddy water, with Miss Mint 400 2018 doing flagman duties. Bradley Boone cleaned up in Mudda-Cross, winning the UTVs, Pro B ATVs, Boggers, and Lites, and he was third in the Open class.
