August Trucking Events: Contests and Giveaways Galore!

We’re back, Trucking Nation, showcasing August’s most thrilling Trucking Events!

Summer isn’t over yet! So pack the kids in the van; there’s still time to sneak in some last minute fun before school is back in session. Let’s enjoy these long, sunny days with some long, shiny trucks!

First up this weekend, August 8-9, The Waupun Truck-n-Show in Waupun, Wisconsin! They’re celebrating their Chrome Anniversary after 25 years of fun for the whole family. Proceeds from the event

benefit the Make-A-Wish foundation and Special Olympics, making it doubly sweet! Friday night features the spectacular “Lights of the Night” convoy illuminating the darkened main street! And that’s just the beginning of the action! Saturday is stuffed with activities ranging from motorcycle rides to a parade through town ending in a catered lunch! Climb into the cabs of polished-up big rigs, peruse the many vendors, and chat with fellow truckers. There’s something for everybody this weekend in Waupun!

August 14-16 kicks off the Great Salt Lake Truck Show! Get there Thursday to register if you’d like to compete in the show. And who wouldn’t want to? They’re giving away more than $10,000 in cash and prizes this year! Start polishing, baby! Friday, there’s a Light Show at dusk after the judging. And Saturday has no shortage of fun, either– enter a Silent Auction, compete in the Truck Pull competition, and then attend the awards ceremony!

Swing by Dallas, Texas, August 21-23 for The Great American Trucking Show! This three-day indoor event is the culmination of Overdrive’s Pride & Polish contests held all over the nation. These trucks will be white-glove clean, even under the hood! If competing in a beauty contest isn’t your speed, there’s guaranteed to be something for you here. GATS has free educational seminars with hands-on demonstrations to help you prepare for safety audits. And there’s loads of opportunities to network with other industry professionals, some even find jobs here!

To finish out this month-of-fun head over to Brooks, Oregon, for The American Truck Historical Society’s Brooks Truck Show! It kicks off Friday night the 22nd, with a truck light-up “Night Glow.” Stick around for Saturday’s festivities, and you’ll get to see loads of antique and vintage trucks in fine, working condition! You’ll even see international trucks too, not your typical truck show! And it’s non-competitive, so everyone can sit back and relax! It’s the laid-back trucker’s dream destination!

Wherever you’re trucking this month, there’s an event just for you! And all of us at ExpressTruckTax love to know what you’re getting up to. So let us know, Trucking Nation! Which of August’s trucking events will you be attending? Or better yet, which competitions will you be winning?
