Party Gras 2015! Trucks Gone Wild mud mayhem at Brick’s Off Road Park

Brick’s Off Road Park is located in southeastern Missouri, about a mud clod’s throw from Arkansas. The terrain in this area of Missouri is rolling, wooded, and prime for some great mudsports. Thus it should come as no surprise that Brick’s and Trucks Gone Wild teamed up for a fall event officially known as the Trucks Gone Wild Party Gras Weekend at Brick’s Off Road Park.

Prior to Brick’s being a popular off-road destination the land was a working farm for the Brickell family. Four generations of the family to be exact. Today the land has been transformed into a playground that is nothing short of amazing. Among its features are a mudfield, a pull pad, a monster truck field, a couple of sloughs, a freestyle field, a midway, and a generous amount of land for camping.

For Party Gras Weekend the awesomeness of Brick’s was injected with the insanity of Trucks Gone Wild (TGW). TGW was concocted by Chuck Davis, Chris Ledford, and Matt Steele and is known for action-saturated, mud-centric videos, which it has been producing for over a decade. But through the years TGW has also grown into a massive event series that take place at locations east of the Mississippi River. When TGW rolls in, the party is on.

Party Gras Weekend was the second and final TGW event at Brick’s Off Road Park for 2015. It was smaller participant-wise than the event held at Brick’s a few months earlier, but nonetheless Party Gras was a blast and offered the usual fun and exciting TGW atmosphere. The two-day event boasted a parade each day led by the TGW folks on a Rice Trailers (official trailer of TGW) gooseneck trailer, which was outfitted to be a rolling party and included a DJ and stage lighting. Each day there was a tug-o-war (with after-party by DJ OBY) too. This was in addition to scores of mud rigs prowling the outstanding goo of Brick’s Off Road Park. Of course, the TGW crew was filming much of the action.

Another big event of Party Gras was the official ribbon cutting (by mega truck, of course) of Brick’s new Trucks Only Arena. This area, formerly used for boat racing, is now transformed into a huge muddy playground for 4x4 trucks.

We had a blast at Party Gras Weekend covering the action and meeting lots of mud-loving folks, and we’re already looking forward to the two dates in 2016 when TGW will return to Brick’s. We’re not the only ones. “We were really excited to see all the changes that had been made at Brick’s, and they exceeded our expectations,” said Matt Steele of TGW. “It's one of our favorite places in the country and we can't wait to return in June.”

Even the largest mud rigs found that Brick’s offered plenty of challenge.
The action in the new Trucks Only Arena was awesome and included 4x4s vaporizing the Missouri mud and water.
Mudding without surprises would be boring. Chas Dickerson wasn’t bored at all in his XJ.
One of the many cool things about Party Gras Weekend was the number of unusual rigs prowling the mud, like this cool 4Runner.
This massive, 440ci-powered Dodge, known as the Slough Terminator, was so cool it hurt.
