Dallas is one of the OGs of the mega truck scene in the northern Georgia area, names like Air Mundy, Flyin' Brian, Matt & Buster Smith, and many more all at the park for a big one-day event. Heck, last year they even had the Mega Truck Bad Boys and King Sling come out. Our buds at Trucks Gone Wild have been there a few times too, so they definitely have some good action to check out down that way. —Ricky B Wilson
Trucks Gone Wild returned to Dallas this past February to the Georgia Mud Bogging Park. TGW is no stranger to this event, having also held this action-packed event in 2012. The event did not disappoint either, with famous drivers coming from surrounding states, as well as Dallas natives.
Workers opened the gates at 4 a.m. with great anticipation for the TGW superfans from the surrounding areas and Dallas. Fans fought the unbearable chilly weather just to get a good spot so they could see all the mudslinging action. The drivers didn't hold back during the freestyle event and blasted off high-flyin' jumps and pulled off wheelies. A a huge ramp jump almost landed one crowd favorite on his back.
The freestyle event brought out fan favorites such as the No B.S. truck and Dallas natives like the famous Daniel Air Mundy. Also on the course were John Gordon with Bone Collector, Lo Life, Ryan Scott with Shockwave, Jim Livingston with Rockstar Mudders, Timothy Aldridge in Kid Mud, and of course the famous Twitty in Liva' Killa', from South Carolina. Daniel "Air" Mundy and John Gordon in Bone Collector tied the Second Place bracket for freestyle. Both showed amazing driving skills and determination with sweet Hill N Hole jumps to high flyin' action.
The First Place trophy went to Twitty in Liva' Killa' who won with his famous wheelies on the ramp jump that also tore up the truck, but he still took home the top prize. While jumping the ramp Twitty quickly realized something had gone wrong. The truck stood up, suspended for seconds, while balanced on his back end, then it seemed that the Killa' would flip and end up topside-down. To the crowd's roaring applause, Twitty somehow maneuvered the wheelie king on its side and not its top. This was most definitely the crowd's favorite action moment of the day.
This was by all means a show-stopping, crowd-pleasing event for all. The drivers came out to show what mudding is all about, and the fans showed that nothing, not even unbearable cold, would stop them from supporting the sport we all love. This was another great Trucks Gone Wild event.
