|As the MTA Truck Show has been coined “The Biggest Little Truck Show in the Country,” we look to present a fun and informative format for everyone in attendance.|
TRUCKERS PRIDE CONTEST
Attendees at the show vote on their favorite truck. Cash prizes and trophies awarded for first and second places.
Only other show contestants can attest to how much work goes into participating in a truck show in the winter months! This prize is chosen by the participants of the Truckers Pride contest. Cash prizes and trophies awarded for first and second places.
PINEWOOD "BIG-RIG" DERBY
The Pinewood “Big Rig” Derby was added to the Truck Show in 2013 and has been a huge hit. Members of Mid-West Truckers Association have the opportunity to be kids once again by designing and building their own “Big Rig.” For a $25 donation, participants will receive instructions, rules and a ‘Big Rig’ kit. Contact Mid-West Truckers Association at 217.525.0310 to have your Big Rig kit sent to you so you can begin your build!
The contest has three awarded categories: Best Design, Fastest Rig, and Best Effort. The Best Design judging will be conducted on Saturday. The Fastest Rig contest will be Saturday afternoon when the Big Rigs will race down a regulation sized Boy Scout Pinewood Derby race track. Bleachers will be available for fans to watch their favorite truck race. The Best Effort trophy will be awarded to the ‘Miss Congeniality’ of the contest.
