How to Tow an ACE out of the mud?

I recently returned from a Nascar Track that got real muddy from rains, many people had to be towed out of the fields, lucky i wasn't one of them. But i got to looking at "how would I ", realizing that there isn't a great place to hook to. Any advice on what people have done? I realize that the first response will be - you should never park on grass - but that is not reality. Anyone figured out a way to tow a ACE from the front ? Thanks

Place boards down and then use the jacks to lift the tires. Place boards under tires to start driving. If you get stuck then rinse and repeat.

I bought an axle strap and the front of the Ace's have the front that has a cut up so the strap doesn't hit fiberglass. Had a friend of mine in Martinsville, where we camp in a horse pasture had to be towed out and had problems with the strap hitting the grill up front.
Notice how the front is shaped.

Thanks, i will look into that, was also wondering if the cross frame inside the grill in front of the radiator is sturdy enough to wrap a strap to - while leaving the grill open ??????

I looked. While it looks plenty strong enough, it is mighty close to the radiator and some other delicate stuff. I would be afraid to mess something up.

You probably would have to tow it out backwards by its hitch.
