The pilot executed a 'three point landing' on runway 35. During the landing roll, the tailwheel-equipped airplane's right main landing gear departed the right side of the runway.

As the airplane decelerated, it nosed over and came to rest inverted.

The pilot's failure to maintain directional control of the airplane during the landing roll. A factor was the muddy terrain condition.
