We had an amazing talk with Randy Kaylor discussing the upcoming 5th Annual Keystone Diesel National Truck Show! For the past five years Randy has been promoting this show to help transform it into one of the greatest trucking attractions on the east coast. Read bellow to see in detail what the Keystone Diesel National Truck show has in store for us all this upcoming week!
During summertime there is no shortage of truck shows. This coming weekend is no exception. Looking for a fun family-oriented show you all can enjoy? Come to the Keystone Diesel Nationals Saturday July 22nd, 2017 at the Maple Grove Raceway. This is a show you won't want to miss!
Now in its fifth year, Keystone Diesel Nationals features a 1/4-mile qualifying track for truckers to strut their stuff and compete against each other to win a pot of gold. Well, not a real pot of gold, but a cash prize sure makes a nice substitute. There is a $50 entry fee to join the race Each entry fee goes towards a cash prize for winners. The more drivers who enter the race, the larger the wining pot. Each driver also has a chance to claim bragging rights for the official track record.
And if 20,000lbs of screaming diesel wasn't enough to get your blood pumping, there's there the “Show and Polish”competition with literally tons of perfectly polished chrome winking at each passerby. These meticulously detailed trucks sparkle and shine, vying for a vote, and a chance to win one of several trophies. Keystone Diesel Nationals uses a professional panel of judges not affiliated with any company or product, and are guided in their judging with defined parameters for scoring.
Kids of all ages love fast cars and big trucks. While there is plenty for mom and dad to see, Keystone Diesel Nationals knows that younger kids need more age-appropriate activities to keep them entertained. This year features an all new and bigger kid's area complete with barrel train, coloring stations, and other fun activities. If the kids are happy, mom and dad are happy, right?
