It’s time for Minnesotans and other off-road riders in the northern United States to prepare to get dirty. The High Lifter team is bringing back the mud in full force when the second annual High Lifter Quadna Mud Nationals Presented by Polaris from June 6-8 in Hill City, Minn.

High Lifter Products has made its mark in the world of ATV mud riding with its annual event, the High Lifter ATV Mud Nationals. For the past 12 years, the team has put on the massive off-road event that draws over 12,000 attendees at Mud Creek Off-Road Park in Jacksonville, Texas. Luckily, the cards fell in the right place after the team was approached by the owners of Quadna Mountain Park about hosting a summer Mud Nationals in Minnesota last year and the High Lifter Quadna Mud Nationals Presented by Polaris was born.

2014 High Lifter Mud Nationals Report

High Lifter owner and CEO, Scott Smith, is thrilled to bring the mud back to Minnesota.

“Creating another mud riding event in the northern part of the country was a natural expansion for us,” says Scott Smith, High Lifter owner and CEO. “Last year’s event was successful and we’re looking forward to another great event. What really sets us apart from other events in Minnesota is that this is a riding event compared to typical ATV exhibitions where you walk around and then watch racing. With Quadna Mud Nationals, you can ride the trails, participate in events, watch racing, shop with vendors, and camp with your friends and family!”

There will be competitions such as the Mudbog, Obstacle Course Challenge, and Poker Run, with cash and prizes to be awarded to competitors during the event.

In addition to the events, there will be a host of industry vendors on hand with goods for purchase including Polaris, Can-Am/BRP, ITP, EPI and more. Along with the industry vendors, food vendors will also be on site.

Admission for three days of unlimited riding, exciting events and entertainment, and booths from the most well-known vendors in the industry is $60 per adult; children of the age 5 and under receive free admission. Dry camping is available on site for $30. There is also a special day rate for those wanting to come out just on Saturday. More event information can be found online at www.QuadnaMudNationals.com.
