Hello, Trucking Nation! Summer is coming soon and that means, you guessed it, a multitude of goose-bump inducing trucking events!
From antique truck shows, to pride in your ride, and even truck racing, these events have it all. And the best part? Each of these events are affordable and family friendly! It’s the perfect beginning to anyone’s summer!
Pride in Your Ride
The first event, The Midwest Pride in Your Ride, is happening at the very beginning of May, from May 1-2 at the Tri-State Raceway in Earlville, Iowa. This event will have working class show semi-trucks and antique farm tractors from all across the Midwest!
Then, to add to the excitement, on Friday night there will be a good old-fashioned truck pull and a truck and tractor rodeo. Not to mention on Saturday there will be truck drag racing! The event costs $10 per day but both kids under 12 and cancer survivors get in for free! All the proceeds for this event will be given to the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.
Antique Truck Show
Then on May 3, swing by Perris, California, and visit the Riverside Antique Truck Show & Swamp Meet. This year marks their 30th annual antique truck show! Here, you can enjoy hundreds of restored vintage trucks from semi’s to fire engines to military trucks—oh my! There will be music, vendors, and lots of eats and treats for the whole family, as well as rides on the vintage trains and California trolleys.
Monster Stack Shootout
Mid-May marks the beginning of The Original Monster Stack Shootout and ChampTruck Race from May 22-24 in Willows, California. See real big trucks from all over North America come together in the ChampTruck World Series and The Monster Stack Shootout! See six-wheel drifts, racing pro’s, racing newbies, lots of gear-jamming action and intense competition!
Then, on the very last day of the month, May 31, Super Show Rigs has their second annual Spooling Up Show & Drags Competition in Great Meadows, New Jersey. This all-day event has racing, a burn out contest, a quick truck shootout and so much more. So pack up your family and make your way out to New Jersey to enjoy food, flea markets, and fun (not to mention the best tomatoes ever).
