Fast Facts:
This was the 18th year of the show, and it was huge this time around. If you're like us and you like to walk around to see trucks all day, then this is your kind of show. It was hard not to have a good time when there were so many clean vehicles present and interesting characters walking around. Even though it was raining on Friday, there were more vehicles than ever. Even though the weathermen were correct about it raining for the first two days, they were wrong when the sun came out all day on Sunday.

Special Events:
For all of the mobile audio fans, there was a USACi competition. Entertainment during the day included a freestyle BMX show, a motorcycle stunt show, a burnout contest, a monster truck car crush, a truck tug of war, and new this year was a special dragging contest.
