The last Overdrive’s Pride & Polish National Championship qualifying event of the 2015-16 season takes place this weekend in Crossville, Tenn., at the Fitzgerald Glider Kits’ parts and sales facility off of Interstate 40 in East Tennessee.

The July 15-16 event will pit some of the country’s top show trucks in a two-day event that is free to the public. The event also features live music, a NASCAR simulator, food and refreshments, prizes and giveaways and more. All proceeds benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

They’ll square off against the Best of Show winners from the 2016 75 Chrome Shop Pride & Polish show and the winners from two shows held in 2015.
