Married to Mud: Most of you know the drivers of these mega trucks, but not everyone knows the wives, the girlfriends, the women who put up with the constant repairs, the heart attacks during crashes and spending in their bank accounts.
Lesha Priest is apparently married to the color orange and Randy Priest changes hobbies like he changes underwear. You have probably seen that big orange and white Dodge they call Mud Stick at events. Randy has admitted in the past he isn’t very competitive, and he “just likes to be out there,” but that may all change when he debut’s Quick Stick, his new race truck during the MTS races this year.
