Think again. With Pride & Polish action heating up tomorrow in Wisconsin, here’s a heads-up on a couple regional events occurring over the next several weeks:
This weekend, notes reader, part organizer of this one and Regal Service Corp. driver Scott Carlson, the Class 8 on the Lake Show gets under way at Indian Creek Campground in Geneva on the Lake, Ohio. The event, held by Truckers Helping Hands, includes a truck beauty competition with modest registration fees, a Saturday parade of lights and a strong emphasis on outreach to children. Proceeds benefit the Ashtabula County Special Olympics.
And over in Idaho, a show I first wrote about around this time last year is on again in the Idaho Truck Show and Shine, running July 11-12 (with the second day being the primary show day) in Nampa, Idaho.
For a little background on the event, follow this link to my coverage from last year.
Otherwise, visit the show website for full event details.
In the gallery below, you’ll find a few shots of rigs from the 2012 event.
What shows are you headed to this year? If we haven’t listed them as yet in our Events calendar, drop a comment below or get in touch withe me directly to add them. We’ve got all the big national events, but a lot of the regional shows I like so much I know we’re missing. Let us know!
Affected tractors are equipped with an automated Eaton UltraShift Plus or Eaton Advantage Transmission with right hand stalk shifter. In the affected trucks, the display on the instrument panel can indicate “N” when the shifter is set into “D” or “R,” causing the truck not to move.
