The early August weekend included a scavenger hunt for kids and families that spanned the fairgrounds, motocross riders performing tricks and stunts, and monster trucks “Toxic” and “Raminator” destroying cars.

Show attendees could get ride on the Virginia Giant monster truck.

Other event highlights included limbo for lowered trucks, burnout contests, drop and drag, in addition to the big rig glow show.

The 2017 Carlisle Truck Nationals are slated for August 4-6. at Carlisle is underway with the Fall Carlisle set for September 28-October 2.
