2012 Lawrence County Fair Big: Rig Pride and Shine Truck Show
By Pam Pollock
Professional Truck Drivers are the backbone of America. Without them and their big rigs delivering everything we use, America stops – literally. It is nice when drivers and their families are given the opportunity to have a day where they can kick back and relax and share a special moment together.
Drivers did just that at the 2012 Lawrence County Fair Big Rig Pride and Shine Truck Show in late August. They proudly displayed their magnificent “iron steeds” alongside the horses and cows at the Lawrence County Fairgrounds, located just east of New Castle, Pennsylvania. While waiting for the truck show judging to be finished, they took in the sights and sounds of the fair.
The day culminated with the Trophy Presentation during a special ceremony at the Grandstand. Winners included:
