Childhood Nickname Inspires Mega Truck

Childhood Nickname Inspires Mega Truck

Mega Truck Monday: When Randy Priest was in school they used to call him, “Stick Boy.” Now, one might refer to that as bullying these days but ole Randy didn’t let it get him down and thus Mud Stick Mega Truck was born.

“I’m not very competitive, I just enjoy being there,” said Priest.

  • Facebook Page: MudStick Mega Truck

Mud Stick wasn’t Priest’s first mud truck, but he didn’t have much to say about the first and admitted it only made it out a few times.  “I change hobbies a lot, before mud trucks was side by sides,” he said.

Like most mud junkies, Priest is no stranger to playing in the mud and dirt and has since he was little. Married with two kids, this is something he can now share with his family.

“My daughter will be 9 in April,” said Priest. “She likes it, but is a girly girl too. She enjoys the kids at school knowing her daddy’s truck the most.” Priest’s son who is just 11 likes to get behind the wheel of Mud Stick when he can.

Wheels Deep: If you could get behind the wheel of any other truck which would it be?

Priest: Probably Jimmy Rigged’s Yeagerbomb

Wheels Deep: A favorite truck besides your own?

Priest: Rossmite’s

Wheels Deep: Why is your truck white and orange?

Priest: Orange has always been my favorite color, I would paint the whole thing orange if it wouldn’t look bad

Watching children react to Mud Stick is what really keeps Priest going. The truck might not be fast, it’s big and heavy and the kids really love it.

What’s on the Horizon for Priest? Quick Stick Mega truck. We’ll call this one Mud Stick’s little brother. Quick Stick will be ready to make his debut at the first Mega Truck Series Race in Rush, Kentucky on April 18th. It will be painted the exact same as Mud Stick and ready to run in the race game.
