February 2016

Buck Motorsports Park is located 10 miles South of Lancaster,PA at 900 Lancaster Pike in Quarryville, PA. "The Buck", as it's more commonly known, is called the Playground of Power and it hosts a variety of high-horsepower events throughout the year. Every year in August they hold Truckers Day at The Buck which raises money for the Children's Miracle Network.

The 2015 show was held on August 22 and marked 26 great years of truckers getting together at "The Buck" to raise money for the Miracle Kids. The show featured the safe driving contest in the morning as drivers showed off their skills in the driving course. Over 250 trucks filled the show & shine fields and gave the spectators and judges plenty to look at! Several local companies brought quite a few trucks to compete for the Best Fleet awards.

Throughout the day, a fun, family atmosphere prevailed as truckers kicked back and enjoyed themselves. There was something for everyone at the show as there were a number of fun games & activities for the kids to enjoy. Many of the grown ups tried to win a variety of items in the annual auction by being the highest bidder.
After checking out all of the show trucks and vendors, there were plenty of refreshments including the ever popular chicken dinner or the deep fried Oreos! The truck show ended with the trophy presentation but the action was far from over! The evening featured the Show Truck Parade of Champions down the track, and then the action really picked up as the Big Rig Semi- Truck Pulls got underway. Drivers competed for cash prizes and trophies in a number of pulling classes, including the always-popular street pulling classes, which featured every day work trucks flexing their muscles on the track! The professional truck pulling teams all had the crowd cheering as they rolled some coal on the track!

The 26th Annual Truckers Day at The Buck was a big success and it continues to be one of the top events in the country for trucking excitement that the whole family can enjoy.
