Haul in to one of the largest and most action-packed truck events in the world. The Carlisle Truck Nationals is a must-attend event and has been epicenter for all things truck since 1991. Check out the lowered mini trucks, lifted 4x4s, chromed out big rigs and the perfectly restored classics at the event that celebrates the truck hobby. Annually more than 2,000 trucks are part of the judged Showfield but more than judged excellence, there is something for the entire family to enjoy. Kids and adults alike can enjoy monster truck shows plus climb in for a monster truck ride around the grounds. The family fun continues with the Kids at Carlisle Activity Center, shopping, parts buying at the Manufacturers Midway and much more. In addition to the family fun there will be a tailgate competition with prizes awarded and celebrity guests including Kevin Tetz and Susan Parker.
The pulse-pounding fun continues with a high/low contest, wheelie rides and burnout competitions – there’s more than you can imagine.
Online showfield registration is available for the 2012 event. If you'd prefer, registration is also available by calling our office at (717) 243-7855. Please note: refunds will not be issued less than 19 days prior to the beginning of the event and winners' lists are subject to change. As in 2011, the judged showfield will park according to truck class and the judges will come to you.
Judging is on Saturday only from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and is exclusive to participants who register for the judged competition. Please be parked in your designated class, have your judging card available and your truck prepared for judging by the 10:00 a.m. Saturday deadline. Judging cards can be picked up at the Goody Bag garage upon arrival.
