There is Mud in Longville

Story by Tim Mutrie, expn.com

Adam Buck of Buck House Productions traveled up to Levi LaVallee's home/compound in Longville, Minn., last week. But with conditions too muddy for snowmobiling or dirtbiking of any kind, boredom began setting in.

"We'd rented this truck from the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport," says Buck, of a loaner Hummer H3. "Sh-t, it's a rental truck, we were all bored, so why not? Eventually Levi jumped behind the wheel and showed us all how it's supposed to be done." LaVallee's Polaris-riding snocross teammates T.J. Gulla and Chris Kafka (in the backseat, fyi) were also on hand.

The smoke emanating from the vehicle at the end of the clip wasn't a big deal, according to Buck. "That's just mud and water on the exhaust. Actually, believe it or not, we jumped that truck and then drove it four-and-a-half hours. So it wasn't a problem. It held up really well to the abuse," he says.

The truck was returned on-time to a dutiful rental agent back at the MSP Airport. "We ran it through the carwash once before we took it back," says Buck. "They didn't say a thing."
