Mudfest

NWAPA Northwest Outdoor Activity Vehicle of the Year Event – Mudfest

In its 23rd year, the Mudfest event includes an average of 30 NWAPA member automotive journalists who spend two days driving around 30 vehicles through a mix of on-road handing and off-road courses. Testing takes place at The Ridge Motorsports Park in Shelton, Wash. In addition to the paved road coarse, a custom off-road course is built to explore the capabilities of the sport utility vehicles, crossovers and pickups.

Vehicles compete in six different categories: Compact, Premium Compact, Family, Premium, Pickups, and Extreme Capability. At the end of the event, attending journalists tally up their scorecards and, based upon any number of criteria, select the winners.
