The gang from LargeCarMag was back at the Lee Hi Travel Center in Lexington, VA to host their Southern Classic Truck Show on October 14, 2017. 

This is an event that truckers mark on their calendar every year as a “can’t miss” and the 2017 version of the show was no exception. Trucks began rolling in on Friday afternoon and kept filling up the lots at Lee Hi right thru the evening hours. There were both local and long distance rides, and some of the finest working bobtails and combinations showed up to show off! As in years past, this was a non-judged, no trophy show with a laid back, family atmosphere that drivers have come to enjoy. The drivers enjoyed the show with family and friends and got to “talk trucks” for the day.

There were a number of vendors on hand in the vendors’ midway and the little ones had fun in the kids zone, that featured the ever popular moon bounces. One popular part of the show each year is the parade of trucks thru downtown Lexington and the 2017 show saw quite a few trucks line up and put on a rolling show for the spectators along the highway.

The night skies were brightened by the annual light show, as truckers proved that you just can’t have too many chicken lights!

Steve and Michele Ford, founders of LargeCarMag, wanted to thank all of the sponsors, participants, and spectators that made their 2017 Southern Classic Truck Show a big success. They also wanted to thank the Lee Hi Travel Center for hosting the event, and plans are being made for the 2018 event to return again to Lexington. Make sure you come out this October and check the 2018 show out in person.
