Truckers play – kids win

John Stewart | December 01, 2010

The fifth and final Custom Rigs Pride & Polish event of the season ended on a high note in late October, with needy southern California children getting a helping hand at the 30th Annual Truckin’ For Kids show held at the Toyota Speedway in Irwindale, Calif.

It was the first year the truck beauty show partnered with the Truckin’ For Kids organizers, who’ve raised more than half a million dollars for kids’ charities over the years.

Trophies were handed out in more than 30 classes covering both Pride & Polish and the more relaxed Show-and-Shine competitions. Trucks of all makes and models competed against the clock on the speedway’s tarmac in both 1⁄8-mile drag-racing and driver-skill events. n
