Carlisle Truck Nationals 2016 has a great array of lowered mini trucks, lifted 4x4s, chromed out big rigs, SUV’s, custom vans and the perfectly restored classics. The weekend celebrates trucks of all kinds. Annually, more than 2,000 trucks are part of the show field. Looking to upgrade your truck? The weekend features vendors and manufactures showcasing their products with some offering installs and fantastic deals on parts and supplies. Shop the midway or browse the truck themed swap meet.
Better yet, there is something for the entire family at Carlisle. Kids ages 12 and under are admitted free, allowing families to enjoy monster truck shows at an affordable price point (included with gate admission). Best of all, attendees can climb in for a monster truck ride around the grounds. The family fun continues with the Kids at Carlisle Activity Center, shopping and much more. The pulse-pounding fun continues with special truck themed competitions, including burnouts, low truck limbo, drop and drag, beauty and more.
