Heavy Foot'n in South Carolina

Heavy Foot'n in South Carolina

Each week we pick a Bad A$$ to represent the big truck community. This week our pick comes again from South Carolina. Those folks are a special breed of mud junkies! Mat Poynter takes the spot in his one of a kind mud truck.

“The truck has a complete one off paint job,” he said. “Most people say she’s just a trailer queen and when I tell em what I do, they think I’m joking.”

Poynter is married and when he is not spending time working on the truck he loves to spend time with his wife and son.

We asked Poynter to pick a favorite truck besides his own and he said he couldn’t because he loves them all.

“I’ve been addicted to mud bogging since I got my first ATV,” he said. “I love everything about our sport and would like nothing more then for it to keep growing.”

 You can follow Poynter and his truck on the Heavy Foot’n facebook page, where you might run across some good clean, fun trash talking between the 1 tons.

“But at the end of the day we are all out to help each other like a family,” he said.
