Ford, Dodge centennials spice Carlisle Truck Nationals


Nearly 1,700 vehicles turned out for the annual Carlisle Truck Nationals staged by Carlisle Events and its fairgrounds facility in Pennsylvania.

The turnout was nearly a record for an event launched in 1991. This year the features included the 100th anniversaries of Ford trucks and of Dodge/Ram trucks.

Other highlights of the three-day event included monster truck shows featuring Snakebite, Big Foot and rides in the Virginia Giant.

Big rigs also took “center stage” with several hundred haulers and other heavy equipment on display.

Carlisle Events has announced the show’s 2018 date — August 3-5 — and expressed hopes of exceeding the 2,100 all-time record for vehicles on display.
