The good ol’ boys and girls build trucks big in central Louisiana. No, like, really really ridiculously big. And loud. And just plain awesome. See what the madness of Louisiana Mudfest is all about in this awesome video.
IndyCar's Grand Prix of Louisiana was so wet this weekend that qualifying was cut short, a practice session this morning was cancelled and the race itself was bumped up fifteen minutes to avoid more storms. Naturally, folks got stuck. One true hero decided to help Gabby Chaves out of the mud on his own.
Rain and mud cut the January Lone Star Rallycross event short, which caused another problem with the tow vehicles parked in the soft grassy parking area. They got stuck. Most of the rallycross cars, however, didn't get stuck in this mess. Behold, a Subaru towing a Silverado out of the mud.
This is pretty much just another classic clip of party animals mud wrestling and turning fuel into noise... until "Purple Platinum" shows up. It looks like something Jimmy Buffett might have commissioned in a cocaine rage, not to mention tremendously unsafe and a lot of fun.
Let's talk about mud, you guys. It's bad news. Not only can it ruin that one nice pair of pants you have, it can also wash away your car in a filthy, gushing torrent.
There isn't a single human being who has seen an excavator and not wanted to ride in the scoop. One Russian man got to do just that, but he had to get himself stuck in waist-deep mud first.
Playa Azul is a a nice place for a couple of chika tourist babes to hang out, go surf, and then make the short walk back for some ceviche at Restaurant Mary Mar. It's also a nice place for a well-timed splash from the local troublemakers in their big old Dodge Ram.
Give credit to Brazilian race car driver Allam Khodair, who single-handedly pushed his Ferrari F430 back onto the track during last year's GT3 Brasil Championship. He's like a kitten hanging from a branch. Hang in there, Khodair!
