Mudfest

2013 Mudfest April 16-18

2013 Mudfest will be Chaired by Ryan Douthit,  It will be help at Dirt Fish Rally School www.dirtfish.com.

The heavy hitting 4×4 SUV market isn’t as significant as it was during the early years of the Mudfest event. However, the sport utility vehicle and crossover market is nonetheless a weighty portion of American automotive sales.

Around late March each year, NWAPA members gather for two days in a remote and muddy location to test—both on and off road—the driving prowess of the industry’s latest SUV and CUV creations.

At the end of the event, members tally up their scorecards and, based upon any number of criteria, crown one vehicle Sport Utility Vehicle of the year.
